Brief description Young drivers across the globe are killed in crashes at rates far exceeding older, more experienced drivers. Queensland and NSW have recently implemented graduated licensing programmes incorporating vehicle, journey and passenger restrictions in an attempt to reduce the road toll. The manner and extent friends and family influence the risky behaviour of young drivers is unknown and will be explored, including modeling of behaviours and attitudes, rewards and punishments.
