Explantion: The pre-crash Report found that drivers aged 16-24 years were more likely to drink and drive and cause a fatal collision. However, drinking and driving at any age is dangerous. Researchers believe younger drivers are more likely to drink and drive because they are likely to socialise late at night and then drive, or have friends in their car who will distract them, or both. Sometimes a crash happens when a driver tries to prove to themselves or to their passengers how well they can control a vehicle at higher speeds. They are more likely to do this after drinking.
