Carolyn, a car accident client of the firm.

A study was conducted by the AAA Foundation on unlicensed drivers and their overall contribution to car accidents. In a 2008 report, AAA reported that unlicensed drivers are involved in one out of every five fatal crashes. The AAA Foundation analyzed data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) database from 2001 to 2005.

The findings reported that from 2001 through 2005, an average of 58,423 drivers were involved in 35,505 fatal motor vehicle crashes that resulted in 42,886 deaths each year. If you were one of the unfortunate ones to be injured by an unlicensed driver, a Pasadena car accident attorney from McGee, Lerer & Associates can help explain your rights to financial compensation.

Statistics for Unlicensed Drivers

The findings concluded that on average 8,030 drivers were either definitely or possibly driving without a valid license or no license (13.7% of all drivers involved in fatal crashes) were involved in 7,679 fatal crashes (19.9% of all fatal crashes), which resulted in 8,801 deaths (20.5% of all deaths occurring in motor vehicle crashes). Of those 8,030 annual fatal collisions involving drivers without a license, or possibly no license, 2,403 (29.9%) were driving with no known license. These figures prove that unlicensed drivers are as much as a threat as anyone else on the road, if not more.

The state of California is plagued with unlicensed drivers who injure or kill others who are abiding the law. These drivers come from various ethnicities, age groups, and backgrounds. Whether they are driving on a suspended or revoked licensed after a DUI conviction, or if they are an immigrant, who has failed to secure a valid California license, or if they are a teenager who is unlicensed to driver, or if they are an elderly adult who was banned from driving, all are still on the road illegally. However, unlicensed drivers are morally and legally liable for damages in the event they cause property damage or bodily injuries to another driver, their passengers, pedestrians, motorcyclists or bicyclists on the roadway.
