Is Commuting by car high risk?

2 July 2012

 More than a quarter of drivers have been in an accident on their way to work, and nearly a third have had a near miss in the last year, according to a web poll from IAM Drive & Survive.

The survey, which looked at the experiences of commuters travelling to and from work, also found that ninety-eight per cent of drivers said they are exposed to negligent road users on their journey, 40 per cent of them frequently. Forty-five per cent admitted they have made a mistake which has made them worry about their safety in the last year.

Many businesses include commuting in their driving for work policies.
