Abstract

This paper aims to evaluate how young drivers drive a few years after licensure. Driving behavior in the fourth year of driving is compared to that of the first year, based on data from In-Vehicle Data Recorders (IVDR). Young drivers' cars were equipped with the same IVDR systems in both study periods. The comparison revealed that, in general, driving patterns did not change significantly. The difference in risky behaviour between weekdays and weekends was more prominent in the fourth year than in the first year. In addition, an interesting improvement occurred at the end of the fourth-year study period. The analysis results obtained should also be considered an example of the potential of what may be done with this kind of data.
