British motorists heading to Europe with their cars need to be extra vigilant obeying the law of the road. Italy has come out on top as the most risky place in Europe for UK drivers..

Shortly the government will introduce legislation which will make it an offence to “hog” the middle lane, and tail-gate other road users. Be Wiser Insurance welcomes the new laws.
Mark Bower-Dyke, Chairman of Be Wiser Insurance, comments:
