Survey Highlights Alarming Law Breaking by Drivers



Survey Highlights Alarming Law Breaking by Drivers

A survey conducted by Direct Line and road safety charity BRAKE has shown that an alarming amount of drivers admit to breaking the law when driving, and that despite doing so they still claim to be safe drivers.

More than two thirds (69%) of drivers in the survey admit breaking traffic laws, thereby putting other road users lives at risk. The majority of these drivers indicating they do so knowingly, believing they can do so without posing a danger to themselves or anyone else.

The survey shows a clear split between male and female drivers, with 46% of men saying that they break traffic laws, but believe that there are no safety implications. This compares with 27% of women drivers who said the same.

The complacency of many male drivers shows through again with more than half (52%) of men saying that they think they are safer drivers than most, compared with 39% of women who are equally confident that their overall driving is safe.
