They say every cloud has a silver lining and the silver lining for the ever rising fuel costs could well be the safer driving habits the soaring pump prices have influenced. The unexpected impact on the safety of Britain’s roads has recently been revealed in a survey by IAM Roadsmart. Of 1,004 motorists surveyed, 72 per cent stated that they had changed how they travel due to travel costs. Of this number, 38 per cent stated that they now drive more economically as a result of rising fuel costs, while almost one in five (19 per cent) have taken extra care to stick to the speed limit. This respectively represents up to 12.5 million and 6 million of the 33 million people in possession of a full driving licence in the UK who have adopted slower or smoother driving habits in recent times. These newly adopted driving habits by motorists will not only save money on fuel and travel greener, but also potentially save lives.
