CR 151: Young Drivers Research Program: The Young Driver Problem versus the Young Problem Driver Problem. A review and crash data analysis (1994)


The concept of a young problem driver sub-group, that is, a sub-group who operate at a (substantially) higher than average crash risk and therefore contribute disproportionately to young driver crashes is often proposed.
