Concerned about other drivers on the road? You should be. Especially those drivers driving without a license. A recent study conducted by the California DMV showed that unlicensed drivers and those with suspended or revoked licenses are nearly three times more likely to cause serious crashes. Not surprisingly the study, titled “Estimation of Fatal Crash Rates for Suspended/Revoked and Unlicensed Drivers in California,” also reveals that unlicensed drivers are more dangerous drivers than those with suspended or revoked licenses.
