A large amount of accidents on UK roads are caused by immigrants, according to a council official.
It has been reported that young Polish men are behind almost one in six of collisions in Britain, to the point where they are classified as one of the three most at-risk demographics in parts of the country. A council executive for community safety commented that road accidents are "becoming quite a serious problem with immigrant drivers".
He added that they "drive too fast, go round roundabouts the wrong way and often indulge in drink-driving".
Officials have warned that the situation is only likely to get worse as the country's economy becomes more reliant on migrant labour. The majority of Eastern Europeans involved in road accidents appear to be 16 to 24 year olds who tend to be unskilled production workers and are not able to speak much English.
The lack of public buses is putting more and more immigrants in cars as they try to get to work especially in rural areas. In addition, many foreign drivers are unaware of how dangerous and illegal it is to overload a vehicle with passengers, in an attempt to save time and money.
