Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death and injury for all young people (ages 1 through 24). Young drivers in general are two to three times (2x-3x) more likely to experience a crash. In particular, during the first six months of licensure, young drivers are eight times (8x) more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than more experienced drivers. To address this problem, the YNDRC contains research, tools and strategies for young drivers, parents and educators to help reduce the crash risk of young drivers and to improve their safety, and the safety of other road users.
