Lorry drivers are voted the UK’s safest drivers

by 10 May, 2019HGV Drivers

That’s according to a recent survey conducted by Gloucester based WMB Logistics.

The firm surveyed 2,267 UK drivers over 18 years of age, and all those involved owned a full UK driver’s licence as well as their own car, ensuring they’d had their fair share of experience cruising the streets of Britain.

The survey was part of a study into Brits’ attitudes towards road safety

The participants were all asked about:

  • How safe they felt on the road
  • Their feelings towards their fellow road users
  • If they consider themselves to be a safe driver
  • How they tend to react to a potentially unsafe driver

The results for the top five safest drivers were:

  1. Lorry drivers, (due to how much time they spend driving) – 22%
  2. Parents – 21%
  3. Delivery drivers – 13%
  4. Coach drivers – 11%
  5. New drivers – 10%

Great to see lorry drivers acknowledged

A spokesperson from WMB Logistics said:

“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”
