Young Drivers An Increasing Problem ?
  • Over 73,500 young European persons aged between
    16-24 years old were killed in traffic collisions
    in the last decade
  • This represents 25 of all road fatalities

4
Its a Fact !
  • On average, over 18 of all persons killed in
    road collisions are between 16-24
  • Only 10 of the population falls within this age
    group
  • Young people are at almost twice the risk of
    being killed in a road collision than other age
    groups

5
Where and when are they dying ?
  • Over 60 fatalities involving young people occur
    in rural areas
  • In the UK, more die in September and October than
    any other months of year
  • Weekend fatality rates for young people are
    higher than the rates for the population as a
    whole across Europe.
  • Info from Traffic Safety Basic Facts 2006
  • European Road Safety Observatory

Examples of Good Practice

Academic View
  • Potential Solutions
  • Reposition the Rules
  • Improve way to provide information guidance to
    young people
  • Co-Opt the Culture
  • Make images and identities sought by young people
    seem undesirable, ridiculous or shameful
  • Tackle the Talent Model or the X Factor
  • Emphasise the social and emotional aspects or
    driving.
  • Educate that driving is not just a natural
    talent.
  • Re-Think the Driving Test
  • Skills for life needed not just ability to pass
    the test.
  • Simon Christmas 2007
  • The Good, the Bad and the Talented.

13
Casualty Reduction Who takes the Credit?
  • It doesnt matter who saves the lives as long as
    the lives are saved
  • It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do
    not care who gets the credit.
  • Harry S Truman

14
Conclusions
  • Far too many valuable young lives are being lost
    on the roads
  • Need to address the heavy influence of the
    Internet sites such as YouTube.
  • Education must start early and be effective and
    memorable
  • Enforcement a last resort
