Be Wiser Insurance

According to a survey by a leading insurance company more than half of UK motorists would see younger drivers forced to affix Green "P Plates" on their vehicles from when they have passed their tests until they are 21.

The results of the survey were reported in a news article by Yahoo cars:

“53% of motorists think new drivers should display P-plate to denote their probationary status.

A further 58% of drivers also think new drivers should only be allowed to carry a certain number of passengers to prevent distraction and young drivers being encouraged to drive recklessly by peer pressure.

More than half of British drivers (53%) also think young drivers should not be allowed to drive on motorways until they have had specific training.

Elsewhere in the survey, 50% of drivers believe there should be a minimum period a young driver holds a provisional licence before sitting a driving test.

More than one in four (43%) say that telematic tracking devices should be fitted to young drivers’ cars. Also, 17% thought all cars would benefit from being fitted with a tracking device.”

Figures show that many younger drivers are already choosing to have telematics devices fitted to help lower insurance costs.
