An annual report about road traffic casualties amongst young people, that is people aged between 16 and 24 inclusive.
Higher risk of road traffic casualties for young people
- Young people aged 16 to 24 were 12 per cent of the population in 2012, but were 22 per cent of the killed and seriously injured (KSI) casualties over the five year period 2009 to 2013 inclusive.
- The relative risk of becoming a casualty for young people is much higher as a passenger than as a pedestrian or driver. Young people aged 16 to 19 were 5 per cent of the population in 2012, but they accounted for 20 per cent of all passenger fatalities over the five year period 2009 to 2013 inclusive.
- Just under half (48 per cent) of passenger casualties aged 16 to 19 were in vehicles driven by drivers aged between 17 and 19.
Drivers’ involvement in accidents
- Between 2009 and 2013, young people aged 17 to 19 were 4 per cent of the population (mid-2012 figures), but 7 per cent of all drivers (4,408) in accidents were aged 17-19.
