Abstract

According to the WHO, young motor vehicle drivers are significantly over-represented among those injured or killed in road traffic accidents. Crash risks for teenage drivers are greater than those for any other comparable group. SHANEEL BACHOO explores the role that personality plays in influencing the driving practices of young drivers.
