Initial Findings of the Effect of COVID-19 on Young Drivers in North Carolina

Due to the perceived burden of COVID-19 on young drivers and their families, several states, including North Carolina, have introduced or passed legislation to relax the licensing requirements currently in place for new teenage drivers. Technical Brief 2, released November 6, 2020, examines driver licensing data and crash data for young drivers in North Carolina. Specifically, it compares data from January 1 to August 30, 2020, during the height of COVID-19, with historical averages.
