Young males more likely to obtain driving bans

Young males between the ages of 20 and 30 are most likely to obtain driving bans according to figures from the Institute of Advanced Motorists. Between July 2013 and July 2014, 92,136 people were banned from driving, but figures show that almost a third of these were young males.

A significantly lower number of females the same age were banned from driving. Those with the most driving bans are 25 year olds with 3748 of these being males compared to just 454 females. The research has indicated that there has been no change in the main at-risk group with regards to unsafe driving. Males have been shown to be higher risk on the roads previously and chief executive of the Institute of Advanced Motorists believes that the attitudes of this group of drivers could be changed. He states that young males should be targeted for advanced training in order to prevent accidents and fatalities. Although many young male drivers do practise safe driving, the figures show that many could still use some education on the risks of unsafe road use.

Repercussions of unsafe driving

Driving bans do help to prevent unsafe drivers from using the roads, but practising safer driving can help prevent you from getting a ban at all. Although you may be worried about getting a driving ban, practising unsafe driving can have more serious repercussions to others using the roads and can put lives at risk. Many people fail to think of others when using the roads but by simply sticking to the speed limit and following the Highway Code, you could be preventing a serious accident from occurring. You may even be saving a life.

Although some drivers are perfectly safe when using their vehicle, others are not always so vigilant. Should you have sustained a personal injury in an accident that was the fault of another road user, you may be entitled to compensation.
