Instances of Road Accidents in Australia Involving the Youth

by on Dec.15, 2015, under Safe Driving Tips, Smash Repair Tips

Road accidents happen. It is either the fault of the driver or the other party, but one thing is for sure, both of them can suffer from the inconvenience of repairing the damages caused. This becomes even more challenging when the youth are involved.

A report by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) and the Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) reveals that 45% of young Australian injury deaths and hospitalizations are a result of road traffic crashes. In fact, young drivers aged 17 to 25 years old represent 25% of all road deaths in the country.

Most of these are due to over speeding — intentionally or unintentionally — and men are at higher risk than women are in breaking road rules. Apart from that, other leading risk factors among youth are driver errors, alcohol, night driving, the presence of another passenger and low seat belt use.

This proves that newly licensed drivers like teenagers have the highest risk of getting involved in accidents. They are novices in learning complex skills and are bound to make mistakes. Of course, this does not mean that being a novice driver means fatality. Some get into accidents with their vehicles getting dents and scratches. This is where our services come in and help.

Drivers know too well that road accidents happen, so they get an insurance to make sure that they will not have problems when they need repairs. Experts say that this is beneficial for young drivers, as they are still in the adjusting stage.
