If you read our driving behavior and road rage report, you know that how people behave behind the wheel varies greatly based on where they live. However, another interesting factor is age.
We know that driver age is a big factor in how much people pay for car insurance, with teens far and away paying the most. In fact, on average, you can save 9% on car insurance premiums just by turning 20.
It makes sense in some ways as younger drivers have less experience behind the wheel and may drive more recklessly. According to the National Safety Council, teens represent 3.6% of licensed drivers, but account for 9.3% of drivers in all crashes and 6.3% of drivers in fatal crashes.
But beyond these basic facts, how do drivers of different ages and generations behave behind the wheel? What bothers them the most? And what good behaviors do they prioritize?
