Road Rage Reduction

According to the ANNENBERG PUBLIC POLICY CENTER, if a Beluga whale could drive, it would have less accidents than perhaps a Narwhal. Why you ask? Because the front of their brain is more developed.

 

Slower growth in working memory linked to teen driving crashes

ANNENBERG PUBLIC POLICY CENTER OF THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA

Research into why adolescent drivers are involved in motor vehicle crashes, the leading cause of injury and death among 16- to 19-year-olds in the United States, has often focused on driving experience and skills. But a new study suggests that development of the adolescent brain may play a critical role in whether a teenager is more likely to crash.

We all knew that the sword sticking out would make it harder to drive, but in addition, the smaller frontal brain would no doubt make it crash more often.

All joking aside, This is such a strange thing to measure. And I wonder how they remove immaturity, gender, cell phone use, passengers and all the other distractions that cause a crash. They did all that with just 1000 observations. I guess we will have to trust the researchers.

 


Wikispeedia has been helping teens avoid speeding tickets since 2005. No one at Wikispeedia.org has ever received any payment, including me. Consider becoming a silver sponsor and keeping us afloat. We receive no government assistance and as hard as we try, we have yet to receive any grant money.  (Come on State Farm Safety Grants!)
