The Driver Training, DriveWize UK, course is designed to increase awareness of how a user’s behaviour on the road can affect how safe a driver they are.
Accidents happen due to inattention and distractions as well as failure to observe the rules of the road.
According to the Department of Transport, 1,713 people were killed in reported road traffic accidents in Great Britain in 2013, 2% (41) fewer than in 2012. This is the lowest number of fatalities since national records began in 1926. The total number of people killed in 2013 was 39% lower than the 2005-09 baseline average.
