Road Rage Tucker Kennedy

Why is this topic a problem, especially for teen drivers?

In 2013, young people ages 15-19 represented only 7% of the U.S. population. However, they accounted for 11% ($10 billion) of the total costs of motor vehicle injuries.
Aggressive driving behavior 1.5%

What all of this information means is that even though the percentages seem small they are not. According to The 1st source "221,313 were treated in emergency departments for injuries suffered in motor vehicle crashes.". 1.5% of that is 3320. to put that in perspective, there are 1600 people in my High School.

What groups are currently working to solve this problem?

The AAA Foundation

The AAA Foundation has done research on aggressive driving and how prevalent it is in drivers. The AAA foundation also has a lot of nice information regarding the topic for research.

The Insurance Information Institute

The III sourced and compiled information from the U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to create an easy to read and understand page. The layout makes everything easily accessible and simplistic.

What is something else that can be done to help solve or alleviate this problem?

The Driving exam needs to be more tedious

Most people were never taught how to drive correctly. if you compare the crash rates of the U.S with 11 people in 100,000 people dying to Sweden with 3 in 100,000 dying in crashes. That's almost 4 times the rate. Sweden's process to become a driver is very tedious, The U.S should more strict with traffic code enforcement and the process to drive.

List two actions you can take that will make more people aware of this issue.

Honestly there is nothing any company or person can do, everyone is aware of it. The bad drivers need to be taken off the road to really "Solve" the problem.

If someone has Road Rage they could just don't drive. Like i said there is no real "Solution" without taking drivers off the roads.
