The Weekly Roundup

Our top story this week: Road safety charity Brake and Direct Line are launching an appeal to drivers' better nature, urging them to sign Brake’s pledge to help prevent the devastating crashes that often result from risky law-breaking at the wheel. New research shows while almost all drivers (99%) believe they are comparatively safe, two thirds (69%) admit putting others at risk by breaking traffic laws!

In other news, Young motorists could have to wait until they are 18 before they take their driving test and be banned from carrying their peers under proposals being considered by the Government. Transport ministers are examining radical plans intended to cut the number people killed and injured in accidents involving novice drivers.
