A survey in Britain has found that a small percentage of motorists actually stick to the speed limit. Do you?
reports that only one per cent of male drivers said they obeyed the speed limit, while three per cent of female drivers said they stuck to the required speed.
The survey, compiled for insurance company Peoples Choice, questioned 1 005 drivers. It found that most drivers do not think speeding is the main problem on their roads.
The biggest concern was children not wearing seatbelts. Of those polled, 38 per cent of the women and 22 per cent of the men were concerned about children not using seatbelts.
"People would not dream of transporting their best china or stereo system loose on the back seat of their car - so why don't children receive the same care and respect?" asked one respondent.
"The fact that so many motorists are ignoring the speed limits makes it brutally apparent that a great deal more work needs to be done by the government to educate drivers about speeding and safety," said the head of the insurance company.
He was pleased with the high priority motorists gave to ensuring children wore seatbelts.
