Ok, we get the point.
There are countless statistics to support the fact that young drivers are at more risk than older drivers.
Research by Brake suggests it's due to a mix of inexperience, overconfidence and risky behaviour. They found that young people were more likely to speed, overtake on blind bends, not wear a seat belt and drive whilst under the influence of drugs.
Other factors which could have an impact are who we drive with – it's tempting to show off in front of a car full of friends or become easily distracted by antics in the back. Young people tend to socialise at night and this is when many accidents happen, especially between 2am and 5am.
