RAC Report on Motoring 2011

24 July 2011

The Report shows that the vast majority of drivers consider themselves law abiding, but believe other road users flaunt the rules by drink driving, breaking speed limits and texting while behind the wheel.

But are 'other drivers' really that bad? Is there a hard core of drivers who will not obey speed limits and have one too many before setting out on their journey? And if yes, who are these drivers?

Almost six in ten drivers believe that that there are not enough police on the roads to act as a deterrent'. 24% also believe they are unlikely to be caught if they break most motoring laws, perhaps the 'hard core' of persistent offenders?
