Be Wiser Insurance

Motorists in the UK can use blinking as a method of assessing how tired they are on the road, according to a roadside breakdown firm.GEM Motoring Assist has stated that ten times per minute is the average amount people blink, with any more than this being an indication of boredom or tiredness.The method is a good way to judge whether people can no longer concentrate on the road, said David Williams, chief executive of the breakdown firm.Drivers may find that by using the method they save on their car insurance policies if they are involved in fewer accidents."It is a built-in early warning system that gives us the opportunity to head for the nearest motorway service area or other refuge from the road before our driving becomes erratic and potentially dangerous," said Mr Williams.Meanwhile, GEM was recently rated the number one roadside breakdown firm by Auto Express, with the firm beating off competition from the RAC, AA and Green Flag.
