BSM rolls out risk awareness programme nationwide

1 July 2006

A new research project is set to show that poor awareness and visual skills explain why inexperienced drivers are three times more likely1 to have accidents.

The University of Nottingham and BSM, the UK's largest driving school, are looking at the critical differences in driving behaviour between novice and experienced drivers, particularly the way they perceive and react to hazards. By teaching learner drivers the hazard perception techniques of experienced drivers, the project will aim to try to reduce these statistics.
