Unlicensed Drivers Add Up

One in every five fatal car crashes in our country every year involves a driver who does not have a valid driver's license.

Those startling statistics are part of a recently released study conducted by the AAA on traffic safety.

Troopers with the North Carolina Highway Patrol say driving without a license is also a major problem in Eastern Carolina. More than 500 citations have been issued since the beginning of 2006 to drivers who were either driving without a license or with one that has been revoked.
