Car drivers feel safest behind the wheel than on other modes of transport

1 May 2006

A study compiled by Brake and Green Flag shows that drivers felt safer behind the wheel than as a passenger on a train, plane or ferry – despite actually being aware that these alternative modes of transport are much less likely to end in disaster than a car journey. However most respondents ranked being a passenger in a car as one of the modes of transport that made them feel least safe.
