THE YOUNG DRIVER PARADOX

The young driver paradox is that inexperienced drivers are disproportionally involved in accidents. The solution is to have them drive more, but this increases their exposure-to-risk, and this increased exposure-to-risk increases the likelihood of being involved in an accident, especially for drivers lacking experience. This study presents an overview of the young driver paradox and discusses the risk factors involved for the young drivers. /RTAC/
