Half of Drivers Admit Breaking Traffic Laws

Half of drivers break common traffic and driving laws, according to a new survey.

The habit was described as an “endemic” after almost half of the motorists surveyed admitted to breaching road rules – resulting in calls to increase policing of dangerous driving.

When asked for their reasons for flaunting safety legislations, half of those questioned stated that they did not agree with the laws – There were also twice as many men as women that admitted to breaking the rules because that they thought that they would get away with it.

Despite these figures, almost 7 in every 10 drivers would consider themselves safer than most other drivers – a rise since 2005, when just 5 in 10 thought the same back in 2005.
