According to global research, teen drivers are 3 times more likely to have an accident or crash compared to adult drivers. This high ratio for teens is due to several factors including inexperience, excitement, experimentation, intoxication and peer pressure. Locally, over the recent 2023 Easter holiday there were 30 deaths, 153 injuries in 288 road traffic accidents that were reported to the ZRP. Most accidents were caused by speeding, distraction, misjudgement and failure to observe road rules. The most fatal ones occurred at night.
