Michelle Harrington, road safety manager at RoSPA, said:

“Drivers aged 17 to 24 make up just seven per cent of UK licence holders, yet are involved in around one in four of all crashes that result in someone being killed or seriously injured.

“This is largely due to inexperience, so it’s vital that young people’s learning experiences on the road are as extensive and involved as possible.”  

In Wycombe Marsh there were 26 accidents from 2014 to 2019, six of which were recorded as 'serious'.

An accident blackspot for young drivers in this area is the London Road junction by Mickfield Road where four accidents occured in the same spot.
