Women Are Better Drivers – Discuss!

Male chauvinists fond of criticising women drivers may be forced into a U-turn by new research that indicates it is men who are the inferior sex behind the wheel.

The study examined insurance, crime and driving test statistics – and women came out on top in almost every metric.

The research, by price comparison site Confused.com, revealed women take marginally longer to learn to drive but commit fewer motoring offences, are far less likely to be involved in an accident, and cost insurers less when they make claims.

The study also found men are almost four times as likely to commit a motoring offence than women.

Men dominate across the board when you look at the most common offences, according to the study.

In total, more than 585,000 drivers in England and Wales were taken to court for breaking the law on the road in 2017, of which 79 per cent were men.

Men were found to outnumber women five to one when it came to drink-driving offences, and two to one for driving without tax or insurance.

Not Exactly a Ringing Endorsement For Automated Cars!!

Self-driving cars designed by Waymo, a subsidiary of Google’s parent company, Alphabet, have problems understanding the basic rules of the road, according to a new report.

The Chrysler Pacifica minivans are currently being tested in the suburban town of Chandler in Arizona under the watchful eye of safety drivers.

However, locals have become increasingly frustrated by their presence, the Information claims. The cars reportedly have difficulty turning left on fast-moving roads and have a habit of stopping at traffic signs for longer than necessary.

Could This Simple Change Save You Money?

Up to a third of UK drivers could be wasting hundreds forking out for an expensive car insurance premium they don’t necessarily need.

New research found that one in three are using their car for short trips they admit could’ve been completed by walking or by using public transport.

A poll of 2,000 drivers revealed that 97 per cent of short trips being complete by drivers in cars could have been walked.

Almost half (45 per cent) said they could swap to cycling while 50 per cent claimed that they could get public transport instead.

Would Introducing This Be a Good Idea?

Durham Police is going to offer drink-driving offenders new devices which will breathalyse them before their car starts.

The pilot scheme, which is the first for the UK, uses “interlocks” to immobilise cars if the driver is over the legal limit.

Drivers will be forced to take a breath test before starting their car and again at random points during a journey, with the results sent to police officers in real time via a mobile network.

Durham Police says the devices are already common in the US and Denmark, and are being offered free of charge in the force’s area to offenders on a voluntary basis.

Elsewhere in the world, the devices can be fitted to cars as part of a court sentence for people found guilty of drink-driving.

Andy Crow, the detective inspector leading the move, said: “This really is an innovative project which is a first for the UK and will hopefully help us identify and deal with potential drink-drivers before they even get behind the wheel.

“A number of offenders in our area have a problematic relationship with alcohol and we hope, as part of a wider programme, this will help them address their issues.”

How Much Do YOU Know About French Driving Laws??

Almost six in 10 UK drivers know nothing about a new raft of driving laws introduced in France this year.
A survey undertaken by RAC Europe shows that over half of continent-bound drivers (59%) are unaware of the changes, with many also concerned about the impact of Brexit on their future travel options.

The majority of motorists expect the cost and hassle of driving abroad to increase after the UK leaves the European Union.

The RAC is urging drivers to make themselves aware of the changes to France’s driving laws, and has called for the UK government to provide more assurances about what to expect from Brexit.

The survey of 1,400 drivers shows that almost four-fifths (78%) of motorists are unaware that speed limits on France’s secondary roads was reduced on 1 July from 90kph to 80kph (55mph to 50mph).

Is Your Car British Made?

ONCE UPON a time many of Britain’s drivers would choose a new car because it was built in the UK. Those days appear to be over. Production for the domestic market has fallen by 47% in a year, meaning nearly nine in ten cars built here are for export.

The industry body said that car manufacturers were facing a ‘perfect storm’, with falling consumer confidence, tough new emissions and fuel economy tests and the looming summer holiday season pushing down demand for domestically built cars by nearly half, in June.

“This is massive by any terms,” said Mike Hawes from the motor trade body the SMMT, adding that the industry was “surprised at the severity” of the fall in volume.

More than one million people work direct or indirectly for the UK car industry.

Sales of cars in the UK are predicted to drop by 6% on last year’s 2.5m total, following a 5% fall on the previous year. By contrast, Europe as a whole has grown by 2.7% in the first six months of the year.

Hawes warns bumps in the road remain for UK car makers, as Brexit and the threat of a tariff-driven trade war between the US and Europe could cause more pain still. “We can’t afford to lose just-in-time production,” he said, referring to the time-sensitive manufacturing supply chain that could be affected if car parts are delayed crossing borders.

Bosses at Jaguar Land Rover have been leading calls for clarity over Brexit.

Don’t Fall Foul of This Little Known Driving Law!

Rule 97 of the Highway Code instructs motorists to have “footwear and clothing which does not prevent you using the controls in the correct manner”.

As flip flops have poor grip, and can move around while you’re while driving, they are not deemed to be suitable.

Wearing the incorrect footwear may obstruct you from carrying out an emergency stop, which can lead to collisions.

Driving without shoes on is also deemed to be dangerous as it can cause your feet to slip off the pedals.

The RAC advises you wear shoes that provide adequate grip.

Driving Standards Agency recommendations echo this: “Suitable shoes are particularly important behind the wheel.

“We would not recommend driving barefoot because you don’t have the same braking force with bare feet as you do with shoes on.”

Drivers are also advised not to wear bulky footwear that restricts ankle movement.
