Motorists who take to the road for a living should receive extra training and tuition, it has been claimed.

According to Neil Greig from the Institute of Advanced Motorists Trust, 30 per cent of deaths behind the wheel are people working at the time of the collision, the Herald has reported.

"You can say to employers that if employees are being paid a mileage rate and representing a company then the company should be aware of what they are doing and of their standard of driving," he said.

Extra training for motorists may also see firms make fewer claims and pay less for company van insurance policies in the future.

This comes as statistics from the Department for Transport show that there were 3,150 road deaths in the UK in 2006, compared to the 3,201 recorded on highways over the course of 2005.
