Department for Transport rolls out 50 new road safety measures
The Department for Transport have today announced 50 proposed new measures for a two-year plan to protect vulnerable road users. Amanda Stretton, motoring editor at Confused.com says:
“Our research shows almost two in three (63%) UK motorists have experienced road rage, so any new proposal to clamp down on this will no doubt be welcomed by drivers. Road rage tends to cause dangerous driving on our already chaotic roads. Knowing that police could analyse dashcam footage might encourage motorists to think before they put their foot down or lash out at another road user, making driving a much safer and easier experience for everyone.
“Among the new measures, the government is also suggesting that drivers who take cycling awareness training could be eligible for cheaper insurance. According to our latest Car Insurance Price Index, the average cost of premiums for UK drivers is now at £760 so any initiatives that could help drivers save money whilst motoring costs are on the rise would definitely be welcomed!”
