Government to introduce black box scheme

More than 14,000 young drivers aged 17-24 will have the devices installed in a bid to reduce road accidents.

Government to introduce black box scheme

More than 14,000 young drivers aged 17-24 will have telematic boxes installed in their cars as part of a new government scheme to drastically reduce the number of road traffic accidents.

Known as Driver 2020, it’ll see these black boxes work to record data on some of their driving habits, such as how often they speed, the severity of their braking and how they handle cornering.

Detailed feedback on performance will then be given via a mobile app, making it incredibly easy for participants to see exactly where they need to improve.

Other elements of this £2 million scheme will have learner drivers practice their hazard perception in a simulator and pledge to drive carefully in “mentor agreements” with their parents.

Another lot will spend a day in a classroom learning about the many risks that come with getting behind the wheel.

"We are committed to improving the safety of all road users, especially young drivers who are at a greater risk of being involved in a collision,” said a Department for Transport spokesperson.

“For example, through our award-winning THINK! campaigns we have partnered with brands like LADbible, Coca Cola and Budweiser over Christmas to increase the unacceptability of drink driving among young men."

Statistics from road charity Brake show that teenage drivers are involved in a staggering 9% of all fatal and serious crashes, despite making up just 1.5% of licence holders in the UK.
