ABI urges young drivers to be safe on the roads

Posted in: Car Accidents Road Traffic Accidents 

New research by the Association of British Insurers (ABI) shows that 55% of young drivers are distracted while driving if they are carrying passengers, 45% by the scenery and 44% by the radio – while around a quarter said they would find acceptable to speed at night (24%) or on country roads (26%).

The single biggest cause of accidental death of young people aged 15-24 is getting in a car and dying in a crash. The ABI therefore recently launched the Campaign for Safe Young Drivers, which would like to see radical change to the driving test system – to make the roads safer for under 25s and everyone else. The campaign calls for:

  • One year minimum learning period
  • Limiting the number of passengers allowed in a car with a new young driver
  • Curfew on night time driving
  • Zero tolerance on alcohol
