The NSW Government Motor Accidents Authority

claims cognitive, attitudinal, behavioural and

cultural and social factors make young people

more susceptible to being involved in road

crashes.

Young people aged 17 to 25 years are at a higher

risk of crashing than older drivers because of

inexperience and a tendency to take part in risk

taking behaviour.

State Governments and Automobile Organisations

monitor road fatalities and actively support driver education in an effort to eradicate road trauma. (see links
