Abstract

The objective of this study is to explore crash occurrences for drivers with suspension/revocation for non-highway safety reasons. Using a stratified random sample of suspended drivers in the United States, results indicate that as a group, non-highway safety suspended drivers crash behavior differs from licensed drivers. Comparative analysis indicates heterogenic crash behavior when non-highway safety suspended drivers are placed into sub-groups based on the underlying reason for their suspension. The results provide information to administrators, policymakers, and policing agencies regarding crash behavior for various groups of non-highway safety suspended drivers. The outcomes may indicate that differential policy interventions are needed to address the role of sub-group variation, such as graduated licensing after suspension, a concept raised by various organizations including the AAMVA Suspended & Revoked Working Group.
