Mass Qutoes Scary New Driver Statistics

Halloween is around the corner and, as scary as that may be, MassQuotes offers some even scarier new driver driving statistics:

  • 43% of first year drivers and 37% of second year drivers get into accidents.
  • The average driver’s education student in MA only gets 6 hours of professional training. Plumbers and electricians often apprentice for 8,000 hours to get a license to practice their job!
  • Driving accidents are the #1 killer of teens. The rest of the top ten killers (#2 -#10) combined don’t kill as many teens.
  • 93% of all teen accidents are caused by “driver error.” The majority of fatal teen accidents do not involve speeding or alcohol.
