Although there has been a sustained reduction in Australia’s national road death toll over recent years, young people are still over-represented in road fatality and injury statistics, particularly young males. Young drivers continue to engage in a range of dangerous on-road behaviours, including drink and drug driving, speeding, aggressive driving, driver fatigue, mobile phone use and distraction. This book presents the latest statistics and reports on road safety rates and attitudes in Australia and examines the risk behaviours of young drivers. The book is aimed at educating young people and learner drivers, and contains a range of advice on how to avoid risks and increase road safety and awareness.
