Call to stop young drivers giving lifts to friends

There has been a call to stop young drivers giving lifts to their friends.

The government has been considering an idea to ban young drivers from carrying passengers other than members of their own family.

The plan has been put forward by the Association of British Insurers as a way of cutting the number of young people killed in car crashes.

Drivers under 25 are involved in a third of all deaths on British roads.
