Crashes are the leading cause of death for adolescents and young adults. While policy and engineering efforts have been successful in reducing the rates of fatal crashes, many factors (e.g., behavioral, developmental, social, cultural) contribute to the risk of crash injury.  Prevention activities and programs need to thoughtfully consider the breath of factors that can contribute to crashes and crash injury disparities among groups of young drivers.
