ABI urges for restrictions on passengers for young drivers

Giving evidence to the Transport Select Committee, Nick Starling, the ABI’s director of general insurance and health, said: “Inexperience is the biggest danger facing young motorists, but peer pressure is a close second. Our evidence shows that an 18 year-old novice driver is three times as likely to be involved in a collision than a driver in their forties. In the USA, the crash risk for young drivers nearly doubles with two young passengers in the car, and trebles for three passengers.”
