Study Results On Drivers' Licenses
Posted by Jennifer Alcaraz on Jan 8, 2013 - 7:52:37 PM

WESTWOOD—A study conducted by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) shows that drivers with revoked or suspended licenses are three times more likely to be responsible for causing fatal car accidents. It’s considered more dangerous to be a driver without a license instead of a person driving with a suspended or revoked license. Drivers like these, are 2.6 to 2.73 times more likely to cause a deadly collision, but this also depends on the person behind the wheel.

The study, Fatal Crash Rates for Suspended/Revoked and Unlicensed Drivers, collected 23 years of consecutive data. The primary interest in the research was the correlation among two-vehicle fatal crashes where one of the drivers was at fault for the crash. After this study, the at-fault collision chance of drivers not allowed to drive has not decreased over time.

 

Additional findings by The Department of Motor Vehicles has shown the percentage of two-vehicle fatal car accidents was highest amongst people between the ages of 20 to 29 who do not have an official license.

 

Any person who is caught driving with a suspended, revoked license, or without a license at all will be cited with a possible 30-day vehicle impoundment. Also there are fines amounting to thousands of dollars, and/or time added to a probation or suspension period.
