The Institute of Advanced Motoring (IAM) has pleaded with politicians to make driver improvement programs a priority, whichever party comes into government.

According to the charity, those in power must make road safety a key feature of their campaign, stating that steps to eradicate human error will be beneficial to all and help reduce the number of car insurance claims.

It proposes offering incentives to chief constables to increase the police presence on UK roads, which would deter drink driving and make members of the public feel safer.

In addition, the IAM believes that potential tax breaks for employers in exchange for providing driver proficiency courses would also be a step in the right direction.

The IAM recently published its own road safety manifesto which outlined what needs to be done to reduce the number of road traffic accidents, which in turn, will cut the number of car insurance claims.
