International Report

1 November 2006

The OECD and ECMT have published a joint report on young drivers entitled Young Drivers: the road to safety. The report finds that road crashes are the single greatest killer of 15–24 year-olds in OECD countries. Young drivers account for about 27% of driver fatalities across OECD countries, although people in the same age group represent only about 10% of the population.

The report is the result of ongoing work by a group of experts from OECD and ECMT member countries which was carried out in order to build up a picture of the main challenges facing young drivers and the most effective countermeasures.
