Over 60% speed on motorways

Research by leading road safety charity, Brake, shows that 61% of drivers admit to driving over 80 mph on motorways

Nearly half of the 942 motorists surveyed said that they didn’t leave enough distance between them and the car in front (generally a 2 second gap). Drivers perceive motorways as safer than other roads due to the lack of other road traffic but this is offset by the high speeds involved. The report also suggests higher speeds on motorways contributes to congestion by interrupting the flow of traffic.
