Summary:
Findings of this report show that in respect of their level of safety, cars that young drivers crash tend to lag the vehicles at risk of crashing by more mature drivers; this persists for a long time after a technology first becomes available. Previous literature and the present survey indicate that the safety level of a young driver's vehicle is not the first priority of the young driver or their parents. The motor  Read more...

Abstract:

Findings of this report show that in respect of their level of safety, cars that young drivers crash tend to lag the vehicles at risk of crashing by more mature drivers; this persists for a long time after a technology first becomes available. Previous literature and the present survey indicate that the safety level of a young driver's vehicle is not the first priority of the young driver or their parents. The motor vehicle insurance industry in Australia prices risk mainly in line with crash frequency and average claim costs. Vehicle safety systems are often not viewed as positively by the motor vehicle insurance industry as they are by other safety-related organisations, as these systems can lead to high repair costs after a crash. However, technologies that do lead to lower claim frequencies and costs are recognised, and some efforts are made to identify these as early as is possible. Keywords: Young drivers, vehicle choice, motor vehicle insurance, new technology.
