UMTRI researchers investigate factors related to high-risk driving among novice teen drivers as well as among young adults. They test theories of risky driving, develop programs to reduce risky driving, and evaluate young driver policies and programs. Specific topics that have been investigated among young drivers are high-risk driving behavior, the effectiveness of the Michigan Graduated Driver Licensing program, the effectiveness of zero tolerance laws, and laws regarding the possession of alcohol by minors.
