    Thirty years ago, eight in 10 Americans ages 1719 had a driver's license.
    Today, it's six in 10, says a recent update published in Traffic Injury Prevention by Michael Sivak and Brandon Schoettle of the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute.

    In a followup to their previous studies examining the percentage of young persons with driver's licenses, Sivak and Schoettle say the trend has accelerated. In 1983, about 87 percent of 19yearolds, 80 percent of 18yearolds and 69 percent of 17yearolds owned a driver's license. New data shows that in 2010, those numbers have plummeted even more: about 70 percent of 19-year-olds, 61 percent of 18-year-olds and 46 percent of 17-year-olds had a driver's license.

    "Overall, the observed decrease in driver licensing is consistent with the continued increase in Internet usage," Sivak said. "In our previous research, we found that the percentage of young drivers was inversely related to the proportion of Internet users. Virtual contact, through electronic means, reduces the need for actual contact."

    For more details, read the entire press release written by Bernie DeGroat, Associate Director of the University of Michigan News Service.

    March 2012: Recent Changes in the Age Composition of Drivers in 15 Countries
    December 2011: Recent Changes in the Age Composition of U.S. Drivers: Implications for the Extent, Safety, and Environmental Consequences of Personal Transportation

    Traffic Injury Prevention is proud to announce a 2011 impact factor of 1.079.*

    One of the most effective countermeasures in reducing traffic fatalities is creating general deterrence through High Visibility Enforcement (HVE). When the perceived risk of getting caught by law enforcement goes up, the likelihood that people will engage in unsafe driving behaviors goes down.

    The High Visibility Enforcement Toolkit has been designed to assist law enforcement agencies, communities, and states implement or enhance their HVE efforts. The HVE Toolkit has been created with assistance from a High Visibility Enforcement Panel consisting of field experts effectively implementing HVE in their jurisdiction or community.

    Motor Vehicle Crash Deaths in U.S. Metropolitan Areas undefined 2009

    Photo of teen girl in driver’s seat

    A CDC study released today compares motor vehicle crash death rates in the fifty most populous areas of the country with overall national rates. Researchers analyzed 2009 data from the National Vital Statistics System and the U.S. Census Bureau and calculated rates for two groups undefined people of all ages, and young people 15 to 24 years old. They looked at 15-24 year olds separately because motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for this age group.

    Some key findings:

    • The motor vehicle crash death rate for all ages in the 50 MSAs was 8.2 deaths per 100,000 residents, lower than the national rate of 11.1 deaths per 100,000 residents.
    • The motor vehicle crash death rate for 15-24 year olds in the 50 MSAs was 13.0 deaths per 100,000 residents, lower than the national rate of 17.3 deaths per 100,000 residents.
    • Motor vehicle crash death rates in the 50 most populous U.S. metropolitan statistical areas varied widely, from 4.4 to 17.8 per 100,000 residents.
