Motor vehicle fatality is the leading cause of death to teenagers, representing over one-third of all accidental deaths in the US. Young, inexperienced drivers are overrepresented in motor vehicle crashes; for both men and women, drivers aged 16-19 years of age have the highest average annual crash and traffic violation rates of any other age group.
In our efforts to better understand teenage drivers and ways to assist them to be safer – it is crucial to understand or at least attempt to understand what thoughts and fears may be running through the heads of teen drivers.
The good folks over at Driving-tests.org conducted a survey that was completed by 1400 participants. At least 75% of the respondents were between the ages of 14-24; at least 50% of participants were women and 30% were men. Take a look at their findings below.
