I've done a lot of driver training because of my job, but the vast majority of non vocational drivers don't and don't want to do any further training after passing their tests. If we cant encourage them I'm not sure therefore how we can make other drivers look properly.
Depressing isn't it. A general acceptance of the dumbing down of standards and skills. Eventually we'll have no choice but to sit in a driverless car as it'll be the only way 'the government' can keep us safe.
Standards required to pass the UK driving test are still quite high though and the UK does have one of the best Road Safety records in the world.
However until we have driverless cars we can still enjoy driving our Morgan's which do at least require some skill to drive safely, which also applies to the new Plus Four and Sixes looking at some of the recent test drive statistics!
