Motorists with car insurance for young drivers reminded of their responsibilities

People with car insurance for young drivers are being reminded of their responsibilities whenever they get into the driving seat.

Young motorists are required to look after themselves and their passengers, according to the Driving Instructors Association (DIA). Steve Garrod, group manager at the DIA, said that this responsibility also extends to other road users, including pedestrians. He made his comments after the body threw its weight behind Road Safety Week, which has been organised by the charity group Brake.

Mr Garrod explained: “The initiative, which commences on November 22nd 2010, should help to reduce the unacceptable number of people killed by motorists on British roads. Many DIA members are currently engaged in voluntary work in colleges and schools to emphasise to young people that driving is a lifelong skill.”

Brake have recently urged the government to take a “bold stance” when devising a new strategy to cut the number of fatalities on UK roads.
