Public wants action on young drivers’ safety

THE public is calling for greater measures to help keep young drivers aged 17 to 24

THE public is calling for greater measures to help keep young drivers aged 17 to 24 safe on the roads, according to a new survey.

In the YouGov survey commissioned by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents and law firm Keoghs, 71 per cent of Brits said they support the implementation of some form of graduated driver licensing — a phased driving experience that would allow young drivers to build up confidence on the road.

A total of 67 per cent of people also support the mandatory use of telematics in the cars of newly-qualified young motorists for a year after passing their test — a system that can monitor their driving and help to reduce insurance premiums.
