Update on Young Driver Green Paper

what are the characteristics of young c ar d river collisions
What are the characteristics of young car driver collisions?
  • Nearly 79% of all young car drivers involved in fatal collisions were males.
  • Likely to have factors relating to speed, recklessness or vehicle control which contributed to the collisions.
  • There is research to suggest that peer pressure can encourage young drivers to drive more dangerously:
      • In 2012, 56% of passenger casualties in collisions involving at least one young car driver were aged 17 to 24, as were the majority of the fatalities (61%).
  • Young drivers are also more likely to have collisions that result in either a fatality or serious injury at night.
  • The majority of young driver collisions happen in urban areas:
      • In 2012, these crashes accounted for 55% of the casualties from collisions involving young car drivers.
  • Rural young drivers are more likely to be involved in a collision than urban young drivers.
      • Around 8% of casualties in urban areas were either killed or seriously injured, compared with around 12% in rural areas.
