1 December 2022 - CIECA WEBINAR SERIES: Young car driver's traffic accident risk and prevention

PRESENTER: Tina Gehlert; Traffic Psychologist (PhD), Leader of traffic behaviour groups; German Insurers Accident Research (UDV), Berlin, Germany

Young drivers are particularly at risk because they have little driving experience (novice risk) and are more willing to take risks than adults (youth risk).

In Germany the milage-based accident risk of young drivers has decreased considerably in the last 10 years. This is due to measures such as accompanied driving at 17, the ban on alcohol during the probationary period and for people under 21, and improvements in driving training and testing. However, young drivers still have the highest accident risk of all age groups.

In this webinar we will take Germany as an example and discuss how to further improve young driver’s accident risk. This also includes possibility within the current revision of the EU Drivers Licence Directive.
