Annual RAC Report on Motoring highlights generational divide among motorists
One in four young drivers has been in a car when they believed the driver was under the influence of drugs - and one in 10 young drivers has admitted taking the wheel themselves while under the influence, according to the 2009 RAC Report on Motoring*.
The report also shows 17 to 24 year olds are more likely to be distracted while driving than their older counterparts. However it also shows that younger drivers are less likely to drink-drive, and are more knowledgeable about environmentally friendly driving techniques.
