The driving test should be overhauled to include a new ‘etiquette’ section to nip road rage, middle lane hogging and selfish parking in the bud, according to a report in The Telegraph.
According to a study by the insurer Intune, four out of five motorists would back the idea if it helped curb behaviour such as overtaking on the inside or bad parking, found. There was also strong support for making all drivers retake their tests periodically to iron out bad habits.
Mark Gettinby, director of financial services at Intune, said: “Statistically older drivers have more accidents but they are more likely to be minor accidents.
“It is important for all drivers, regardless of age, to ensure they are competent behind the wheel and keep up to date with their skills and road rules.
“Taking the time to be courteous towards other road users will also help make the roads safer for everyone.”
