Young people road casualties
An annual report about road traffic casualties amongst young people, that is people aged between 16 and 24 inclusive.
Additional analysis relating to young people and road accidents and casualties on Welsh trunk roads from 2009 to 2012 is also included at Annex A.
Higher risk of road traffic casualties for young people
- Young people aged 16 to 24 were 12 per cent of the population in 2012, but were 27 per cent of the killed and seriously injured (KSI) casualties over the five year period 2008 to 2012 inclusive.
- The relative risk of becoming a casualty for young people is much higher as a passenger than as a pedestrian or driver. Young people aged 16 to 19 were 5 per cent of the population in 2012, but they accounted for 25 per cent of all passenger fatalities over the five year period 2008 to 2012 inclusive.
- Over half (51 per cent) of passenger casualties aged 16 to 19 were in vehicles driven by drivers aged between 17 and 19.
Drivers’ involvement in accidents
- Between 2008 and 2012, young people aged 17 to 19 were 4 per cent of the population (mid-2012 figures), but 9 per cent of all drivers (5,228) in accidents were aged 17-19.
