Britain’s best drivers have been revealed – is your area at the top of the list? | The Sun

BRITAIN's best drivers have been revealed as part of a survey of 2000 motorists.

Those surveyed included private hire, food delivery, public transport and other ‘everyday’ drivers.

Carried out by Zego Insurance, all drivers were scored on their driving technique and experience to determine which region thinks they are the safest drivers.

The areas the drivers were scored on included their tendency to speed, accidents for which they felt they were to blame, and how often they check their mirrors.

London came out on top – drivers there believed they drive most safely near schools, take corners most smoothly, and, on average, rarely make a claim on their insurance.

Yorkshire and the Humber and the West Midlands secured second and third place respectively.

“It is so important to be careful on the roads and to put into practice everything we learn in our driving lessons.

“That said, it can also be such a shame that so many have to pay over the odds for insurance, especially when they don’t have penalties against them or any claims.

“We’re a nation that loves to be rewarded for achieving, and it’s about time good drivers were rewarded for their excellent behaviour on our roads.”
