Sixth Form and Further Education


Young, newly qualified drivers and riders and their passengers are at much higher risk than other road user groups.

A young person aged 17-19 is more likely to be killed in a car driven by themselves or a friend at this age than by any other single cause of death.

25% of fatalities in Essex in the past three years have involved younger drivers, and more crashes involve 18-year-olds than any other age group. The ‘at fault’ crash rate for younger drivers is three times higher than that of drivers aged 26 – 59 years – and excessive speed is a contributory factor in 25% of all younger driver crashes.
