Construction drivers safest on UK roads

Monday, January 11, 2016


Construction workers are the safest drivers on UK roads according to data from an insurance company. 

According to the Aviva Drive app - which uses smartphone technology to record a motorist’s driving style over 200 miles to give a score out of 10 based on how safely they drive in relation to acceleration, braking and cornering - 68.5% of construction workers scored between 7.1 and 10 follow by staff nurses at 67.6% and operations managers at 61.8%.

Social workers and soldiers complete the top five at 58.3% and 57.6% respectively. 

Adam Beckett, propositions director for Aviva, said: “The Aviva Drive app is designed to record how safely people drive to produce an individual score for that person. There are lots of factors which affect how safely a person drives and we’re not saying that everyone in a certain profession drives in a particular way, but it’s interesting to see that some occupations score particularly well.”
