Latest RAC motoring report illustrates increased driver concerns about the behaviour of other drivers leading to accidents and car crash compensation claims

The latest Report on Motoring published by the RAC has revealed an increased anxiety among motorists about the behaviour of other drivers on the road. ‘Road rage’ is no longer a new term, but it continues to cause concern to many about the aggressive behaviour of some drivers, and the potential of this behaviour to cause an accident. The report also illustrates how new car safety technology makes drivers feel ‘cocooned’ and safer in their own cars.

Of the top 5 concerns disclosed by drivers questioned by the RAC, the top 3 involved worries about the behaviour of other drivers:

  • 58% of worries involved people driving with no tax or insurance
  • 53% of motorists worry about other people using mobile phones without a hands-free kit whilst driving
  • 52% of those questioned reported feeling concerned about other drivers being under the influence of alcohol

Top of the list at 60% were concerns about the rising cost of motoring.

Leading car crash compensation law firm, Accident Advice Helpline, commented that aggressive behaviour on the roads can easily lead to serious accidents. Their representative said:

“Incidences of road rage leading to accidents are common. Drivers become embroiled in an argument, sometimes at high speeds, and they can easily lose focus and control of their cars. It’s not surprising that aggressive and careless behaviour behind the wheel concerns other drivers.”

Another interesting feature of the Report was the fact that more than half of the motorists questioned feel safer, ‘cocooned’ inside their cars due to new in-car technology. Although good in some respects, this has the potential to lead drivers to take more risks on the road. It was reported that, ‘almost seven in ten company car drivers feel safer in their cars because of new features and technology.’
