Rise in road traffic accidents involving police cars
I would like to thank you and your colleagues for the kindness shown to myself and my wife. I class myself as very fortunate to have met such kind and caring people.
A Judge has called for the driving age for young men to be raised to twenty-four.
The calls came from the Judge after he presided over two cases of serious road traffic accidents involving young men.
Young drivers account for one in six motorists but are involved in one in four accidents . And it is men aged 17 to 24 account for a high proportion of these - twice that of women the same age.
Judge Jonathan Durham wants to see the driving age raised to help cut the risk posed by young male drivers.
In one of the cases the Judge presided over an 18 year old male was having a 'race' on a dual carriageway travelling at over 90 mph, when he crashed into another car, leaving the driver with a serious head injury and a broken pelvis. In another a young woman was left seriously injured after being thrown 15 ft into the air where she hit a tree by a 20 year old driver travelling at double the speed limit.
