European drivers admit to increased risk taking

Drivers in Europe - including Britain - have admitted to taking more risks on the road, a recent survey has found.
European drivers admit to increased risk taking

The poll asked drivers from all over the continent about what they believed caused traffic accidents as well as what rules they personally break on a regular basis.

Over half of UK drivers were shown to believe that the biggest cause of death on the roads was lapses of concentration such as checking mobile phones.

 

Speeding, driving under the influence and sleepiness were also cited as reasons why collisions happen, with the vast majority of driver admitting to having done one or more of these things at some point.

 

Drivers are also more pessimistic now about death figures dropping than they were a year ago, with a 6% decrease being seen in the amount of people who believe that roads are getting safer.

 

The survey also found that 12% of European drivers still drive when they are over the legal alcohol limit.

 

Despite this, Britain was found to be a joint third in the list of the most responsible drivers, with Germany and Sweden heading up the poll.

 

The research comes after Britain has experienced one of its busiest driving periods in the Easter weekend.

 

It is estimated that around 16 million motorists took the UK’s roads in order to travel for the Easter holidays, with the research indicating that many would have been driving in a negligent way.
