The IAM backed the campaign and Tod Clements, road safety adviser for the institute, said: 'It is getting a bit of a jungle out there. There are a lot of driver-training companies vying for business, but we would wholly support the idea of the industry working together. 'At the end of the day, we all want the same thing - fewer accidents.'
An IAM survey has revealed the need for better training for all drivers, with a survey of motorists' worst habits on the road. Drivers who do not adapt their speed to the conditions and 'lane-hogs' who refuse to move into inside lanes on motorways when they are clear, are the two most common problems, raised by 26% respondents from the IAM's 100,000-strong membership. Drivers using hand-held mobile phones at the wheel caused concern for 25.5% of advanced drivers and tailgating worried 22.5%.
