Motor insurance: Sunday 'popular' for drivers

Thursday, 24 April 2008

A high percentage of drivers are choosing to get away from normal life on Sundays by going on fairly long trips, a report from Confused.com has said.

In total, 62 per cent of those polled by the firm stated that they drive twenty miles or less on this day, while people in cities are likely to drive away from these large urban areas.

Belfast drivers are keen to escape the city, as 85 per cent suggested that they go on Sunday journeys, while 69 per cent from Sheffield look to do the same, Confused.com noted.

Managing director at the organisation Debra Williams said that UK motorists love to feel free on the roads.

"Although hitting the roads on Sundays is probably more indicative of going to Aunt Betty's for tea than of glamorous 1940s Hollywood-style country drives, it cannot be denied that the UK's love affair with the car continues unabated," she commented.

She added that in a bid to keep car insurance premiums healthy, drivers should plan their Sunday journeys in advance and stay vigilant.

Research carried out by the Institute of Advanced Motoring Trust last year found that Welsh roads are more dangerous on Sundays than they are on Mondays.
