One-in-six business drivers feel 'invincible' when driving and never consider their safety to be at risk, according to new research from Masternaut. Van and LCV drivers are the ones most likely to feel 'invincible', with only 10 per cent not considering their safety whilst driving.æ This contrasts heavily with the 26 per cent of public transport drivers and 17 per cent of business fleet car, HGV and lorry drivers who do. 15 per cent of business drivers said that they feel vulnerable all of the time whilst driving, with HGV and lorry drivers feeling the most unsafe at 21 per cent. 2,000 UK employees were surveyed in order to highlight the progress in road safety education amongst those that drive as part of their job. Steve Towe, chief commercial officer and UK managing director, Masternaut, said: 'Our research shows that a high percentage of business drivers don't consider their safety to be at risk - despite driving being amongst the most dangerous profession. 'Research from The Institute of Advanced Motorists' Drive & Survive shows that 86 per cent of fleets have experienced an accident in the past 12 months, so it's alarming to see so many drivers still not considering their safety when driving.î Motorways were unsurprisingly cited as the most unsafe roads on which to drive, with 27 per cent of drivers concerned about safety whilst using them.æ This is interesting, as 3.9 per cent of all 2013 UK accidents actually took place on a motorway, making them statistically the safest type of road to drive on. Rural roads also caused drivers to feel unsafe, with 25 per cent saying they felt vulnerable. This figure rose to 42 per cent for HGV and lorry drivers and 36 per cent of LCV and van drivers.
