Abstract—Recently, media, researchers, and others have brought increased attention to young drivers' risk, hoping to find ways to reduce it. This paper investigated the risk factors of young drivers, who are considered a vulnerable road user group. A questionnaire was carried out among 750 drivers in Mansoura city, Egypt between July and September 2012 aiming to obtain information on demographic factors, drivers' behavior while driving, as well as information on the traffic violations and accident faults. Analysis of the questionnaire results proved that the main reason of young driver involved in road accidents is careless driving. Results of the questionnaire demonstrated that young drivers are more prone than other drivers to negative behavior as well as traffic violations and accidents.

Index Terms—young drivers, distraction, traffic violation, traffic accidents, crashes, risky driving.
