STOP LEARNER ABUSE SIGN THE PETITION!
Learners deserve the right to drive without abuse from other road users
Please take a minutes to sign this petition to call on the Government to do more.
According to learner insurance provider Marmalade, (https://www.wearemarmalade.co.uk/driver-hub/news/dangerous-driving-around-learner-drivers), 81% of learner drivers experience abuse from other road users. As a result, 72% make more mistakes, potentially putting them & other road users at risk. Two thirds of learners reported tailgating & aggressive overtaking, 44% being cut-up & 59% honked at. Following abuse 49% had to pull over & 8% gave up driving altogether.
Making such reckless driving around learners an aggravating factor should lead to stronger sentences and a greater deterrent.
