A new study from the Department of Motor Vehicles has stated that the most hazardous motorists on the road are those without a license. As reported by Fox News, those who are unlicensed or have a revoked or suspended license have the worst statistics when it comes to road safety.
The study found that insurance companies in California paid more than $634 million in claims concerning uninsured driver crashes in 2009. The report, which focused on California, looked at fatal accidents across 23 years and found that there are approximately 2 million unlicensed drivers on the state’s roads.
The danger of unlicensed drivers is that they have not received formal training on operating a motor vehicle and have not been tested to find out if they have the skills and ability to drive safely and with respect to the law. Additionally, it may be more difficult to find unlicensed drivers who have caused an accident as there is no record for their information and a link to the vehicle they may drive.
Maryland drivers must face many different hazards on the road every day; unfortunately, dangerous drivers are some of the most dangerous obstacles. Unlicensed drivers represent many of these, and the results of their reckless driving can result in devastating consequences.
