    Drivers urged to attend classes as 95% of crashes caused by human error

    13. Drivers urged to attend classes as 95% of crashes caused by human error
    Police in south Somerset are encouraging drivers to sign up for road safety classes after figures reveal that 95% of crashes are caused by human error.

    In addition, figures have shown that one third of all serious crashes on the road are caused by drivers aged between 17 and 24. Police have therefore urged drivers to sign up for the Road Smart scheme which offers two-hour sessions on driver awareness at no cost to attendees. Around 1,000 people have already signed up but Somerset police are encouraging more to think about attending.

    Sessions will be held in Yeovilton for any who want to attend. Other sessions are being held in Bath, Filton, Taunton, Keynsham, Weston-super-Mare and Chipping Sodbury. Sessions will be available for 17 to 24 year olds as well as those aged 25 and above. Exercising basic road safety can help to lower the number of serious accidents and fatalities on the roads and can ensure you are not putting others at risk.

    Mistakes while driving

    Crashes caused by human error could be the result of failing to look, using a distraction like a mobile phone or failing to regularly maintain your vehicle. Other reasons for crashes may include driving too fast in bad weather conditions, failing to practise basic road safety and failing to be considerate of other drivers. Although many drivers practise road safety, some are not always so vigilant. For example, drivers late to a meeting may drive too fast or drivers who have not had enough sleep may be more likely to be involved in an accident. The Accident Advice Helpline can assist you in a compensation claim should you be involved in a road accident that is the fault of another driver.
