Age of Driver
The number of crashes by driver age varies greatly. Some age groups are over-represented in crashes. Sixteen- to 19-year-olds represent 3.9% of licensed drivers, but account for 8.8% of drivers in all crashes and 5.9% of drivers in fatal crashes. Other age groups are under-represented. For example, drivers 75 and older account for 7.5% of licensed drivers, but represent only 3.4% of drivers in all crashes and 6.1% of drivers in fatal crashes.
