Majority 'happy To Report Relatives' Over Dangerous Driving
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.

Friday 24th October marked Breast Cancer Care’s ‘Pink Friday’. In aid of the event, Sytner Group Head Office hosted the ultimate pink day; with ‘wear something pink’ dress down, a bake-off and a charity raffle. The bake-off invited any budding bakers to make their best cake creations and then enter them into a competition; first prize was a bottle of Moet Pink champagne. The competition was judged by our Group Managing Director, Darren Edwards, before slices of the cakes were sold alongside a plethora of sweets and other confectionaries throughout the afternoon.
