30. Attitudes... (continued)

Young drivers are more willing to take risks compared to other drivers; they are more likely to perceive hazardous situations as being less dangerous than they actually are.

Although drivers under age 25 have the fastest simple reaction times, they respond to traffic hazards more slowly than do mid-age drivers, suggesting that they frequently fail to recognize situations as being potentially hazardous.

Young drivers overestimate their capabilities; drivers ages 18 to 24 perceive themselves as being less likely than other drivers their age to be involved in an accident.

Young drivers rate certain traffic situations as less risky than do mid-age and older drivers, especially situations involving darkness, graded or curved roadways, intersections, and rural environments.

Teens tend to underestimate the danger in high-risk situations and to overestimate the danger in low- to medium-risk driving situations.
