MVR Facts MVR Driver Management System

STUDY STATISTICS

  • Drivers with one traffic conviction during the previous two years had two times as many accidents as a corresponding group having no convictions during the previous two years*
  • Drivers with two convictions had 2.9 times as many accidents as the no-conviction group*
  • Drivers with three convictions had 4.3 times as many accidents*
  • Accident risk increases as a function of the number of accidents and citations on the driver's prior record, and prior total citation frequency continues to be the most significant predictor of accidents involvement, followed by prior accident involvement frequency**

OTHER IMPORTANT STATISTICS:

  • Statistics prove that drivers with suspended licenses are three times more likely to kill or seriously injure others in collisions.
  • One out of five traffic fatalities involve a driver without a proper license
  • Lawsuits are piling up against companies whose employees - often unknown to their employer - had a track record of reckless, dangerous driving.
  • 75% of drivers whose licenses have been suspended or revoked continue to drive.

RECENT STUDY

American Transportation Research Institute Evaluation of 540,000 drivers & their MVR histories

Findings:
The occurrence of a single moving violation dramatically increases the likelihood of becoming involved in a crash.

Specifics:
The four convictions with the highest likelihood of a future crash are:
  • improper or erratic lane change
  • failure to yield right of way
  • improper turn
  • failure to maintain proper lane.
"When a driver receives a conviction for one of these behaviors, the likelihood of a future crash increases between 91 and 100 percent."
