Why young drivers have accidents

Young people - especially young men – have accidents, often because they drive too fast, too risky or too aggressive because they are too inexperienced or are too often drunk or tired behind the wheel. Often they are victims of their their driving motives, ignorance, temperament, lifestyle, but also of their biological anchoring, that favors risky driving to certain extent. Besides, social pressure of peer groups often leads to risky driving. The risk of a momentous accident increases when various risk factors occur together.

Happy young friends in a convertible.
