Drive Smart - Road Safety Week 2015

Nov 24, 2015
The Department of Transport has recently published a report which shows a 4% increase in road deaths and a 5% increase in serious injuries from 2013 to 2014.

Driving is the most dangerous thing most of us do regularly; operating a potentially lethal machine in an unpredictable public environment requires full concentration at all times.

Despite this, many drivers still try to multitask by using mobile phones or eating and smoking, which dramatically increases their risk of causing a crash. More than two in five crashes are thought to be caused, at least in part, by driver distraction.
