Young Drivers Debate, 26/02/14 [E/NI/S/W]

Debate in the House of Commons on 26 February 2014 on young driver safety. The debate was opened by Stephen Phillips (Cons).

He said:

"Road crashes are one of the biggest unnatural causes of death for young people in the UK. The figures are appalling and they speak for themselves. Young drivers are involved in one in four fatal and serious crashes, despite making up only one in eight holders of driving licences. One in five new drivers has a crash within six months of passing their test, and we all know that young male drivers have much higher crash rates than young female drivers".

For full details see the House of Commons Hansard 26 February 2014 which is available from the UK Parliament website.
