Posted by Ben Sessions | Jan 29, 2016 | 0 Comments

The number of car accidents in Macon that involve young drivers is astounding. Unfortunately, our Macon car accident attorneys repeatedly see accidents where young and inexperienced drivers are at fault and cause catastrophic injuries to others on the roadway. Below is some of the data produced by the Georgia Department of Transportation regarding the number of accidents (and proportion of accidents) involving underage drivers in Macon, Bibb County, Georgia.

HOW BIG OF A RISK ARE UNDERAGE DRIVER FOR CAR ACCIDENTS IN MACON, GA?

As compared to the remainder of the population, underage drivers present a tremendous risk to other motorists and members of the public:

In 2013, 2,163 teens in the United States ages 16–19 were killed and 243,243 were treated in emergency departments for injuries suffered in motor vehicle crashes.1 That means that six teens ages 16–19 died every day from motor vehicle injuries.

Young people ages 15-24 represent only 14% of the U.S. population. However, they account for 30% ($19 billion) of the total costs of motor vehicle injuries among males and 28% ($7 billion) of the total costs of motor vehicle injuries among females.
