The most dangerous drivers in Australia revealed

The deadliest drivers on the road are middle-aged men in their 40s, reveals recent research

The most dangerous drivers on the road are middle-aged men in their 40s, new research reveals.

The transport for the NSW statistics provided to Daily Mail Australia shows that motorists aged 40 to 49 were the "deadliest age group of drivers".

Drivers over 40 years were involved in 105 fatal accidents in which at least one person died, compared to only 94 from 17 to 25 years.

More drivers and young riders aged between 17 and 25 died on the road with 51 deaths, but they were not the largest age group involved in fatal crashes.

"In 2017, between 40 and 49 years of age were the deadliest age group of drivers who participated in 105 fatal accidents where at least one person died," the agency said in a statement.

The research also showed that mature men drive better when their family is with them, but they run more risks when they are alone.

"Mature men say they do not take a chance when they have the family in the car, but when they're alone, they think it's okay," Bernard Carlon, executive director of the Center for Road Safety, told the Daily Telegraph.

Steve Philp, 42, told the publication that he is "at his best" at the wheel when his family is in the car.

"Men feel they are the best pilots in the world," he said.

"I am absolutely at my best (when the family is in the car), I do not want my wife's anger," he said.

A Transport for NSW report showed that 386 people died in New South Wales last year.

There were more than twice as many men as women involved in fatal accidents.

Mr. Carlon told Daily Mail Australia that speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol and fatigue were the main killers.

"People should remember that every time they get behind the wheel they are responsible not only for their own lives, but also for the lives of every driver, cyclist or pedestrian they come in contact with.

"Our number 1 killer is still an excessive and inappropriate speed and last year could have saved up to 167 lives, 43 percent of our toll on the road, if people simply slow down."
