Driver education

Young drivers still represent the high-risk group. The interaction between the two aspects beginner risk and youth risk leads to consciously risky driving as well as to unconscious misjudgements. The risk of being injured or killed in an accident is twice as high for young drivers as for older drivers. In addition to target-group-specific information campaigns, traffic education measures and enforcement, driver training must also be further developed and adapted to the specific needs of young drivers.
