Majority 'happy To Report Relatives' Over Dangerous Driving

Majority 'happy to report relatives' over dangerous driving
News brought to you by Sytner Group, the UK's leading retailer of prestige and specialist vehicles.

Almost three-quarters (73 per cent) of people would report elderly friends or family members to the authorities if they had worries about their driving habits, research has indicated.

A survey from the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) showed that over two-thirds (68 per cent) of respondents believed mandatory re-testing of drivers over the age of 70 would benefit road safety.

However, the poll of 1,628 IAM members also showed that over three-quarters (77 per cent) thought young drivers presented a greater risk to road safety than older motorists.

Neil Greig, IAM director of policy and research, commented: "Re-testing at 70 would be a mammoth administrative task with little road safety benefit and the government and safety bodies must work together to communicate the facts about older drivers more widely."

Road safety charity Brake recently called on the government to introduce annual 'fit to drive' health tests, to be carried out by a professional.
