In this study we have interviewed a total of 6.500 university students from Germany, Spain, France, Italy and the United Kingdom. In him, many young respondents recognize that they use their mobile phones while driving, exceeding speed limits, and some of them, say driving under the influence of alcohol. Let’s look at the percentages of each section:
on the other hand, 48% of the young european university claim to have been tempted to drive with more passengers than permitted, the 75 % to driving after having slept very little or nothing, and 28% to hop in a car whose driver had consumed alcohol. With all these data, we are not surprised at all that 30% of college students have admitted to have been involved in an accident of traffic.
As we said, the spaniards have the highest percentage of driving under the influence of alcohol (18 %), while italians are the most-used mobile at the wheel (49 %) and germans are more likely to exceed speed limits.
Maybe, if you give more talks of awareness in institutes and universities of the consequences that may result in these practices, and if, in the colleges and institutes established a subject of road safety, traffic accidents would be the leading cause of death among young people around the world. In Europe, young people have almost double the chances of dying in a traffic accident than the average european.
