Technology put to the test in BBC documentary
Technology from young driver specialist Young Marmalade was put to the test in a BBC2 documentary, How Safe are Britain’s Roads?, which is looking at the safety of UK roads.
In the two-part documentary presenters Justin Howlett and Anita Rani criss-cross the country to find out why traffic accidents happen.
In the first part, which was broadcast on 31 October, the presenters found out what it is like to drive with ‘black box’ technology installed in their cars.
In the second part, due for broadcast on 7 November, the presenters will look at a range of issues including mobile phones, driver tiredness, drink driving and older drivers.
Crispin Moger, managing director at Marmalade, says: “Many young drivers come to us and say that they are good drivers, so why should they pay for the poor driving of others in their age and gender group? With technology, young drivers can prove that they are good drivers and deserve a lower insurance premium.
“We are delighted that the BBC approached Marmalade to showcase the technology that is making a significant impact on reducing the cost of motoring for young drivers.”
