Abstract: The key objective of this study is to investigate the relation between the automotive accident toll and the age of accident victims and investigate the causes that explain why young people are more likely to die on road accidents. After to analyze the relation between the number ofroad fatalities and the group age, and obtaining the results that illustrate the existence of a high percentage of deaths among young people between 18 and 24 years old, we analyse, based on several studies, the factors that explain this situation. There is evidence that some biological and cultural factors explain this high percentage of deaths on road accidents among young people, manly males. We will try to draw some conclusions that will permit to motorize the law enforcement in order to increase the road safety mainly among young people.
