Vehicle crashes are the #1 cause of death for people between the ages of 16 and 24. The National Safety Council, a leader in driver improvement training for more than 40 years, developed the program to specifically target drivers in this age group. According to the National Safety Council:

 

  • Young drivers are involved in fatal crashes at more than twice the rate of all others
  • The first year for a newly licensed teenage driver is the most dangerous with more than one in five involved in crashes
  • Each year nearly 6,000 teens are killed in vehicular accidents; more than 3,800 are drivers age 15-20
  • Annually, more than 326,000 young drivers are seriously injured
  • Exceeding the posted speed limit or driving at an unsafe speed is the most common error in fatal teenage accidents
  • More than 1,000 young drivers lose their lives each year in crashes because of an impaired driver, be it themselves or someone else
  • Although this group represents about 7% of the nations’ licensed drivers, they are involved in nearly 15% of all fatal crashes
