Between 2013 and 2017, 91 young drivers (drivers ages 15-20) lost their lives and 429 were seriously injured in young driver crashes on Nevada roadways. The goal of the Nevada Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) is to reach zero fatalities. Nevada’s Young Driver Safety Problem Fact Sheet provides information on who is involved in fatal and serious-injury pedestrian crashes, where and when these crashes occurred, and why they happened. The Fact Sheet also outlines critical strategies and action steps the State of Nevada plans to take in reducing young driver crashes in efforts to reach our goal of zero fatalities..
