Young drivers, especially males, from 18 to 24 are dramatically more often involved in accidents compared to drivers of other age groups (Evans, ).This overinvolvement of young male drivers in the accident statistics is one of the most consistently observed phenomena in traffic throughout the world. In , young drivers were involved in 95 fatal crashes, serious injury crashes and 3, minor injury crashes.* Know the risks. The risk of crashing diminishes with experience and the development of decision-making skills to recognise risky situations and make safe choices. Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) programs help inexperienced drivers gain experience and develop critical driving skills in lower-risk driving situations. To help inexperienced drivers gain experience to reduce the risk of crashing, researchers at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia have developed and tested the TeenDrivingPlan Practice Guide.
