The Weekly Roundup

In a survey carried out on behalf of Kwik Fit, 47 per cent of respondents said that using a mobile handset to talk or text is their biggest bugbear, making it the nation’s most despised driving habit.Failing to indicate, dangerous overtaking and hogging the middle lane of a motorway were also among the top complaints.

In other news, a shocking 35% of young drivers admit to illegally driving a car without insurance – as do 15% of all motorists. Of those who admitted driving without insurance, 7% said it was simply because they couldn't be bothered, while 8% believe there is no point having insurance as they don’t think they will have a crash.
