Car accidents single biggest cause of death among young people

April 21, 2007, Kitchener, Ontario

Posted by: Robert Deutschmann, Personal Injury Lawyer

The World Health Organization has released a study that outlines car accidents as the single biggest cause of death for people under the age of 25.  Nearly 400,000 people under the age of 25 are killed in car accidents.  The WHO feels that these deaths are preventable.  These deaths include not only drivers and passengers in cars but also children playing on the streets.  The global economic and health costs for car accidents are estimated at $518 billion US.  The WHO report recommends some safety measures including lowering blood alcohol limits for young people, graduated licencing programs, reducing speed limits, child restraints, seatbelts and helmets for motorcyclists.  Many of these measures are already in place in Ontario and North America has one of the lowest mortality rates according to the WHO report.
