Car finance drivers beware of ‘Stop-Start’ drivers

Axa Insurance has revealed in a new study that drivers who only drive every now and again and are subsequently less confident behind the wheel are becoming an increased danger for everyone else on the road.

Axa Insurance has revealed in a new study that drivers who only drive every now and again and are subsequently less confident behind the wheel are becoming an increased danger for everyone else on the road. The research suggests that the so-called ‘Stop-Start’ drivers are putting themselves at risk and others by lacking basic road rules and confidence.

The report covers drivers – including car finance drivers – in the age group of 17-29, and it shows that one in five of those will only drive once or twice a month.

We all know there are some loonies on the road, but is it due to lack of consideration or confidence? This report may just re-raise the question.
