Young driver crashes – casualty map

Plotting the casualties

A report for the RAC Foundation by TRL, the Transport Research Laboratory, has mapped the regional proportions of casualties hurt or killed in an accident involving a 17-19 year-old driver. The average in Great Britain is nearly one in eight (11.9%), despite 17-19 year-olds making up only 1.5% of licensed drivers.

However this proportion rises to almost one in five (18.2%) in Dyfed Powys, followed by Gwent (17%), Cumbria and North Wales (15.8%), Northern and Grampian (15.7%) and Cornwall (15.5%).
