Welsh drivers are among the fastest on the road, picking up more speeding tickets than anyone else in the country.
A poll of 2,000 UK motorists found 45 per cent of those in Wales have been ticketed for driving over the speed limit – with Scottish drivers the most cautious behind the wheel.
Once again, the Scots found themselves airing on the safer side, with under half of Scottish drivers having been in a crash. But you’re most likely to get into a road accident in Northern Ireland, with three in five drivers having been involved in an incident at some point.
James Buttrick from Vantage Leasing, which commissioned the study, said, “Our survey found the majority of drivers are not perhaps quite as safe as they thought they were.
“When it comes to road safety, there’s only so much you can do – your overall safety can easily be affected by other drivers.
“And if your car is written off after an accident – or something else happens that’s not your fault – it can really affect your insurance premiums, as well.”
The South West was found to be the region with the most disqualified drivers, with 17 per cent facing a ban at some point in their lives.
