Confessions of a UK motorist

Have you ever used your phone whilst driving? Had a quick check of Facebook? Driven off after clipping another car? Be honest and take an anonymous quiz…

A survey by car and van insurance company, Staveley Head, has revealed the secrets about driving in Britain today.

For instance, a huge 94% of motorists admit to exceeding the speed limit – which means that just 6% of motorists drive at legal speeds.

More than half (55%) still use their phones while behind the wheel even though it’s been illegal since 2007.

Women are more likely to hit your car and drive away, while 44% of men admit to driving after a drink – even if they think they may be over the limit.

Take the online quiz…

“We were surprised by some of the results from the survey. As an insurer of thousands of commercial vehicles every year, we know that the majority of drivers are extremely careful on the roads,” said Ashley Peters of Staveley Head.

“However, of those who completed the survey, we did discover groups who freely admitted to speeding, using their phone while on the move and even potentially driving whilst under the influence of alcohol.

“It goes without saying that we would always recommend people take the upmost care behind the wheel and that they abide by all the laws of the road at all times.”
