Motorists driving scared

Three quarters of motorists feel more vulnerable today than they did five years ago, with many fearing they could become a victim of car crime or road rage.

The new research, revealed by car care specialists, Motoreasy, found that the younger generation - those aged between 26 and 35 - felt more at risk than those aged over 55 (52% vs. 38%).

More than 26% of those quizzed were worried about car crime, while almost one in five were more concerned about the threat of road rage. High traffic volumes, up nearly 20% in 10 years, left more than 13% feeling uneasy when driving. Breaking down when alone was the major factor for 1 in 12, despite most motorists admitting they carry a mobile phone to contact loved ones or emergency services if they are left stranded.
