Car insurance policyholders told to drive safely

Friday, 01 April 2011

RoadSafe has told car insurance policyholders it is their responsibility to ensure they are driving safely on the UK's roads.

Following research from Brake it found that more than two-thirds of motorists worry about being killed when driving, yet 98 per cent of those surveyed said they were safer than the average driver.

Adrian Walsh, director of RoadSafe, said it is "both a legal and moral requirement" for people to evaluate their own driving and make sure they are driving safely.

He added that all drivers need to respect and follow traffic law and its guiding principle to share the road.

Mr Walsh also advised people to drive carefully, be accident free and research the market for their next car insurance deal.

Recently, government announced plans to raise the national speed limit to 80 mph received criticism from Brake, which claimed that the ten mph increase could lead to more casualties and higher carbon emissions.
