As a young driver, for every mile you drive you’re four times more likely to be involved in a crash than other drivers. Having a car full of other young people significantly increases this risk.
When you have a car full of passengers take into consideration the fact that your car will react differently with the weight of passengers than when you drive alone.
- Distract you when you have not fully mastered your driving skills.
- Encourage riskier driving behaviours such as drug-driving, drink-driving and speeding.
- Tempt you to show off.
