The Safe Driving Survey, sponsored by Fleet Information Software, revealed that twice as many fleet drivers are aware of road rage as 18 months ago - up to 68% from 34%. And even more worrying, over three times as many drivers admitted reacting to another driver's perceived 'bad' driving - 72% compared to 22%. These findings come in the same week that a motorist was stabbed to death in a road rage attack on an M25 slipway.
In a positive move, however, up to 82% of business drivers said they would take some form of advanced driving test if the Government introduced one. FIS identified a definite trend in favour of defensive driver training, among those questioned, with 55% advocating compulsory post driving test training.
