Teenage Road Deaths in North Yorkshire amongst highest in the country

New figures reveal that teenage road deaths on North Yorkshires roads are amongst the highest in the country. The national level of road deaths between 17-19 years olds stands at 11.9% But in Yorkshire it is 14%, standing above the national average. In greater London the percentage stands at only 5.6%  The transport research laboratory  has suggested that if   graduated driving licensing (GDL) is introduced across the region teen deaths could be reduced by 20 per cent.   A successful scheme would have restrictions for young drives, such as limiting the amount of young passengers which can travel with them. Also a late night curfew.  National figures show that one in five young drivers aged between 17-19 years old with have an accident within the first six months of passing their test.
