26 Aug

A third of young drivers who passed their test in the last year read or send text messages while on the road, a Nottinghamshire survey has shown.

Almost half of those questioned by Nottinghamshire Road Safety Partnership admitted to setting up sat-nav systems while on the move while 8 per cent confessed to driving while under the influence of drink or drugs.

Two thirds who had acquired their licence also admitted to being distracted by singing and dancing, while a quarter said they felt they drove too fast in variable road conditions.
