At the same the AA has called for Government action - along the lines of its anti-drink-drive campaign - to cut road deaths as a result of speeding. Kudos UK, the motor claims management specialist which entered the fleet market last year, says the survey reveals that motorists who think they are most at risk when it's wet could be 'dead wrong'.
The figures - taken from the company's database of more than 400,000 cars - reveal almost four times as many accidents occur when roads are dry, as when they are wet.
Kudos UK director Chris Kelly said: 'Nearly three quarters of accidents reported took place on dry roads. We know there are more dry days than wet, but the high promotion of accidents when road conditions are favourable points to poor driving habits as the cause. Anyone who spends many hours on the road, such as a rep, is bound to pick up bad habits and these faults will worsen over time if they are not addressed and corrected. It is important these reps receive training at regular periods to encourage safer driving, with the added 'spin-off for fleet managers of less bent metal and reduced fleet costs.'
