Summary of Analysis

        Researchers from the Texas Transportation Institute recently examined nighttime fatal crash
trends over the past decade. The analysis showed that the proportion of drivers involved in nighttime fatal
crashes nationwide has increased steadily from 1999 to 2008, even as the overall fatality rate (measured
as deaths per 100 million vehicle miles traveled) and the total number of fatalities have generally declined
nationwide over the same period.

        The ten-year increase in nighttime fatal crashes for 16- to 19-year-old drivers is greater than for
drivers age 20 and older. The higher proportion of these crashes for older drivers can be attributed
primarily to increased alcohol use. However, alcohol as a crash factor did not increase for younger drivers
– and in fact decreased marginally – suggesting that other factors are responsible for the higher nighttime
fatal crash proportion for this age group. Information from various sources suggests that the increase for
younger drivers could largely be due to an interaction of driver distraction caused by talking and texting
on cell phones and other characteristics of nighttime driving.

         Driving at night is the most common documented crash-causing danger encountered by
inexperienced drivers, but surveys indicate that very few of those drivers are aware of the added risk
presented by nighttime conditions. Chances of a crash are further increased when other risk factors are
present, and cell phone use by teens represents a risk factor that has become increasingly pervasive over
the past ten years.

Background

         Driving at night is a common risk factor for all drivers, but it is particularly dangerous for young
drivers. Distractions, speeding, low seat belt use and alcohol are also among the most frequently-faced
dangers, but it is the nighttime risk that ranks at the top of the list for the youngest motorists on the road,
primarily due to a combination of the visibility challenges caused by dark conditions, slower response
time brought about by fatigue, and a lack of experience driving under such conditions.
                                                                                                                         2

 
Visibility and Fatigue

        The average person’s field of vision is smaller without the aid of light, and glare from oncoming
headlights can further limit the ability to see clearly and avoid hazards. And according to the National
Sleep Foundation, the average teenager requires at least nine hours of sleep per night, but typically gets
less than seven hours. The resulting fatigue, especially late at night, can contribute to impairment that is
similar to being intoxicated. These visibility and fatigue issues are exacerbated by the limited amount of
experience possessed by teenage drivers. Without sufficient training and practice, young drivers are at
greater risk, risk that is further compounded by the challenges associated with driving at night.

License Restrictions

        It is largely for these reasons that most states include a nighttime driving restriction in Graduated
Driver License (GDL) laws. The laws are designed in part to limit novice drivers’ exposure to the greatest
dangers they face. In most states with a GDL law, the nighttime restriction and a limit on the number of
passengers allowed are the most widely implemented features of that law.

        GDL laws vary widely from state to state, and the same is true of the nighttime restriction that
constitutes a key component of those laws. In 2009, both the Highway Data Loss Institute (HDLI) and the
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) documented in separate reports the positive results that can
be expected from GDL laws that include a nighttime driving restriction.

        In Graduated Driver Licensing Laws and Insurance Collision Claim Frequencies of Teenage
Drivers, the HDLI determined that the frequency of collision claims declined by 7.3 percent for 16- and
17-year-old drivers who faced a prohibition on driving after midnight. The report further stated that a
restriction beginning at 9 p.m. would produce a reduction of 11.4 percent. In Graduated Licensing Laws
and Fatal Crashes of Teenage Drivers: A National Study, the IIHS determined that a nighttime driving
restriction beginning at 1 a.m. produced a 9 percent reduction in the fatal crash rate for 15- to 17-year old
drivers in 100,000 teenagers associated with specific GDL components. Restrictions beginning at 8 p.m.
could be expected to produce a 20 percent reduction in the fatal crash rate for those drivers, although no
states currently have a restriction beginning at that hour.

Lack of Awareness

        Despite its place at the top of the list for young drivers, the danger of nighttime driving is not well
recognized by young drivers. In surveys of nearly 20,000 Texas teenagers conducted by the Teens in the
Driver Seat Center of the Texas Transportation Institute, only 3 percent cited the nighttime risk. In the
                                                                                                               3

 
same assessment, 21 percent of teens reported that they drive after 10 p.m. “sometimes,” and 28 percent
said that they do so “a lot.” Similar results have been noted in more limited survey samples in Georgia,
California and Connecticut.


Findings

        Data for this analysis was drawn from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), which is
maintained by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The years from 1999 to
2008 comprised the analysis period, reflecting the ten most recent years for which data are available. For
purposes of this analysis, the light conditions coded as “dark” and “dark but lighted” were combined to
reflect the percentage of crashes occurring under those conditions. The analysis examined nighttime fatal
crashes overall, as well as nighttime crashes in which alcohol was a contributing factor

        Findings indicated:

            The proportion of nighttime fatal crashes rose by 7.5 percent over the decade examined for
            drivers age 20 and older, and by 10.2 percent for teen drivers.

            This increase was concurrent with a general decline in traffic fatalities nationwide without
            regard to age or time of day, which fell from 41,717 to 37,261 (a decrease of 10.6 percent) as
            well as a similar decline in fatal crashes from 37,140 to 34,017 (a decrease of 8.4 percent).

            The proportion of drivers in nighttime fatal crashes involving alcohol grew by 6 percent for
            drivers age 20 and older, but fell by almost 1 percent among teen drivers.

            While fatal motorcycle crashes increased sharply overall during the study period (111
            percent), the percentage of those crashes happening at night declined by 8 percent.

Cell Phone Use and Texting

        FARS data on cell phone use in fatal crashes are not yet substantial or complete enough to have
been considered in this analysis. Experience to date has shown that such data are difficult to collect
consistently, and that events are generally regarded as being substantially underreported. However,
several facts gathered from other sources point to a steady and rapid growth of cell phone ownership and
use, with a significant portion of that use taking place in motor vehicles:




                                                                                                             4

 
             According to CITA-The Wireless Association, the number of cell phone subscribers across
             the U.S. grew from 86 million in 1999 to 262 million in 2008 – an increase of 204 percent.
             During the same time, cell phone subscribers as a segment of the U.S. population grew from
             38 percent to 87 percent.

             Cell phone ownership among teens is growing roughly three times faster than it is for adults.
             An August 2009 study by the Pew Research Center, Teens and Mobile Phones Over the Past
             Five Years: Pew Internet Looks Back, found that cell phone ownership among adults grew
             from 65 percent in 2004 to 77 percent in 2008 (18.4 percent increase), while it grew from 45
             percent to 71 percent among teens (57.7 percent increase).

             A review by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration demonstrates that hand-
             held cell phone use by 16- to 24-year old drivers has been substantially higher than it has
             been for drivers age 25 and older in each year from 2002 to 2008.




                                                                                                         

Figure 3 ‐ Cell phone use while driving is considerably more common for younger drivers than for older drivers. 

 


                                                                                                                   5

 
            A November 2009 study by the Pew Research Center, Teens and Distracted Driving, notes
            that 82 percent of all U.S. teens own a cell phone; of those who use the phone for texting, 34
            percent say they have texted while driving, and 52 percent say they have talked on the cell
            phone while driving. The study also noted that 48 percent of all teens ages 12-17 say they
            have been in a car when the driver was texting, and 40 percent say they have been in a car
            when the driver used a cell phone in a way that put themselves or others in danger.

            Recent research indicates that texting now takes place more frequently mongst teens that ever
            before and is the communication method of choice for this age group, with 54 percent of
            teens texting on a daily basis compared to 38 percent placing a call on a cell phone (daily).
            The average teen sends and receives 1,500 text messages a month (3,000 per month for
            female teens). Texting is an ingrained part of the teen communication culture.
            A 2009 assessment of teen driving behavior in Texas by the Teens in the Driver Seat Center
            of the Texas Transportation Institute produced the same finding as the second Pew study
            noted above – that 52 percent of teens said they have talked on a cell phone while driving.

            According to NHTSA, the highest incidence of distracted driving occurs in the under-20 age
            group.

Other considerations

        In addition to the distraction element, previous studies indicate that both speeding and seat belt
use should be considered among the factors contributing to all fatal crashes, but especially for those
happening after dark. Research conducted for NHTSA has shown that belt use varies by as much as 30
percent from daytime to nighttime. In addition, speed is present as a factor in nighttime fatal crashes
almost twice as often as it is in crashes during the day.

        While motorcycle crashes increased substantially during the period examined in this analysis,
those crashes do not appear to have contributed to the nighttime trend. During those years, the number of
fatal motorcycle crashes did increase sharply, from 2,340 to 4,954. However, the proportion of those
crashes happening at night declined from 40 percent to 36.5 percent over the same period.


Conclusions

        The findings of this analysis suggest that alcohol is contributing to an increase in nighttime fatal
crashes involving drivers age 20 and older. However, the same is not true for teenage drivers, suggesting

                                                                                                               6

 
that factors other than alcohol are responsible for the trend of increased nighttime crashes for teens. It is
likely that distractions (a common driving risk factor for teenagers) in the form of talking or texting on
cell phones is prominent among those factors. Other dominant risk factors for teenage drivers (lack of
experience, additional teenage passengers, speeding, not wearing seat belts, and alcohol) have been
present and well recognized for many years, long before cellular communication became prevalent.
However, it is cell phone use – propelled by rapid technological advancement and increased affordability
– that is likely the most notable new driving risk factor for contemporary teens.

        FARS data is not yet sufficiently comprehensive with regard to the use of in-vehicle technology
to support the suggested link between cell phone use and increased nighttime fatal crashes. There is,
however, substantial evidence demonstrating that cell phone use is growing rapidly (far more quickly for
teenagers than it is for individuals age 20 and older) and that much of that use takes place behind the
wheel. Furthermore, there are numerous studies documenting the negative influence that cell phone use
has on driving. Clearly, the use of a cell phone complicates the driving task substantially for all drivers.
The effects of this risk factor are compounded by the compromised vision and fatigue that characterize
the nighttime driving environment, and for teenagers, the problem is further exacerbated by a lack of
driving experience.

        The nighttime risk is the most common one faced by novice drivers, yet only 3 percent of
teenagers are aware of the dangers presented by driving at night. Consequently, efforts to reverse the
nighttime fatal crash trend face considerable obstacles until greater awareness and understanding of the
nighttime driving danger can be achieved, not only among teenage drivers, but also among parents and
others who influence those drivers.
