Ealing has one of the lowest rates in England for young people being killed or seriously injured in road accidents.
There were 13 crashes, in which a passenger or driver aged 16 to 20 was killed or seriously injured, in the borough between January 2010 and December 2013, according to road safety statistics from the Department for Transport.
With 18,116 young people living in the area within that age group, this means over this three-year period there were 7.2 such accidents for every 10,000 16 to 20 year olds, a far lower figure than the average for Great Britain which stands at 28.7.
Only three other local authorities in England have a lower rate of 16 to 20 year olds being involved in serious car accidents while only seven other local authorities in Britain have a lower rate.
Across west London there was a very low rate of 16 to 20 year olds dying or sustaining serious injuries in car accidents, with Hillingdon's rate of 17.4 per 10,000 being the highest.
Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for transport and environment, said: "The loss of a young life is always a tragedy and heart-breaking for their family and friends, especially when it could have been prevented by driving more safely.
"In Ealing, we have been making our roads safer for all road users and importantly, have an innovative, engaging education programme aimed at young people just before they or their friends get behind the wheel to ensure they drive safely.
"Driving dangerously can change your life in an instant and it’s never worth the risk."
