AA survey highlights drivers' fears

ROAD rage, personal safety and congestion are the biggest fears facing UK drivers, according to a survey of 502 motorists by the AA. A third of people questioned - 42% of women - said they feared aggression on the road compared with a total of 4% (7% of women) two years ago, according to the new 1996 AA Survey.

Traffic congestion was cited as a major concern by 31% of people questioned followed by the cost of fuel (15%), vehicle safety in an accident (11%), poor driving (11%), speeding (11%), vehicle pollution (11%) and vehicle operating costs (9%). Just 5% of drivers were worried about car crime and the possible introduction of road tolls.
