Cornwall's Young Drivers at Risk
12:15pm 27th May 2014
Cornwall risks becoming the car crash capital for the UK for young drivers.
More young drivers in the Duchy are involved in accidents than almost anywhere else in the country.
More than fifteen percent of crashes where people are hurt or killed in Cornwall involve a teenager.
The RAC Foundation wants limits on new licences, stopping them driving at night or carrying other passengers.
Spokesman Philip Gomm said: "More young people are hurt or killed as a result of driving than drinking, alcohol, gun crime and knife crime combined, and yet we seem to have turned a blind eye to this.
"Graduated licensing schemes are in place across many other jurisdictions around the world, they are being introduced in Northern Ireland and yet we don't seem to be able to deal with it, we think it's about time that changes."12:15pm 27th May 2014
