Lorry drivers voted safest on the road

Lorry drivers, delivery drivers and coach drivers have been found to be the safest on the road due to the amount of time they spend driving.

2,267 British drivers over the age of 18 with a driver’s licence and their own car were asked how safe they felt on the road and about their feelings about other road users. WMB Logistics carried out the research as part of an ongoing study into Britons attitudes towards road safety.

The top five safest drivers were found to be:

  1. Lorry drivers – 22 per cent
  2. Parents – 21 per cent
  3. Delivery drivers – 13 per cent
  4. Coach drivers – 11 per cent
  5. New drivers – 10 per cent

The worst drivers were those behind the wheel of BMW 1 Series cars, the survey found.

“It’s great to see that lorry drivers are considered to be the safest on the road, and we particularly pride ourselves on having the best drivers,” said WMB Logistics spokesperson.
