TitleCharacteristics identifying young drivers at a higher risk of crashing
AuthorsWundersitz LN
Year2007
TypeUnknown
AbstractIn Australia and other developed countries, young drivers are more likely to be involved in crashes than older, more experienced drivers. There is increasing evidence within road safety literature suggesting the existence of a subgroup of young drivers with a higher than average risk of crashing. The aim of this thesis was to examine characteristics of young drivers (aged 16 to 24 years) that identify those with an elevated risk of crash involvement and to validate high-risk driver subtypes among different young driver populations. Young driver interventions might be more effective if tailored to the needs and motivations of these specific subgroups of young drivers identified as being at a higher risk of crash involvement.
