RAC urges motorists to think about their driving style

Almost a quarter of male drivers admit to overtaking ‘blind’ at the wheel, according to a survey by road safety charity Brake.

RAC technical director David Bizley said: “It’s clearly worrying the sheer number of motorists which admit to speeding, particularly on country roads, which are the most dangerous of all.

“Our own Report on Motoring reveals more than one in three (37%) drivers say they speed in 50-60mph zones, supporting the evidence presented by Brake. The fact that the number of accidents and fatalities is higher on country roads highlights the need for motorists to apply the highest levels of responsibility when driving both in urban and rural areas.

“We welcome greater awareness to the perils of speeding and dangerous overtaking and would encourage motorists to take a moment to consider their driving style before getting back behind the wheel.”
