Traffic accidents, unfortunately, are an everyday occurrence and they affect a large number of people. The World Health Organization estimates that by 2030 deaths in traffic accidents would become the fifth cause of mortality. Today, traffic accidents are the number one cause of death of 10 to 25 year olds. Inexperience, over-confidence, high speed, use of narcotics and alcohol are just some of the attributes that affect the overwhelming number of traffic accidents of young drivers. The question is whether young drivers are educated about road safety and how much knowledge they possess at the moment of obtaining a driving license. The paper presents an analysis of traffic safety conditions with emphasis on young drivers and an overview of measures to improve the long-term safety of young drivers on Croatian roads.
