This is the third in a series of reports on safe driving 2012-14 by Brake and Direct Line. It examines attitudes and behaviour in relation to risk and risk-taking on roads, including how safe drivers think they and other people are, how likely they are to break laws or drive in risky conditions, and what level of penalties they think are appropriate to deter risk-taking. The report is based on a survey of 1,000 drivers across the UK carried out by research company Surveygoo on behalf of Brake.
