Young drivers are seen as more of a hazard on the roads than the elderly, a new safety survey has found.
The RAC Foundation poll found:
- 83% regard young drivers being involved in road accidents as a problem
- 52% regard older drivers in accidents as a problem
- 71% agreed that politicians should give more attention to road safety
- 64% of parents say they would ensure their children complied with a graduated licensing system
The poll results showed that a large majority of Britons were in favour of placing curbs on newly-qualified young drivers, such as banning them from the roads late at night or limiting the number of passengers they can carry.
