drivers dread travelling on the motorway in the dark and in snowy conditions

Sumary of Drivers dread travelling on the motorway, in the dark and in snowy conditions:

  • Driving in snowy conditions (42 percent) is most likely to make drivers nervous, followed by navigating a new town or city (32 percent) and roads with lots of lanes (30 percent).
  • Driving in the dark (27 percent) and wet and rainy conditions (25 percent) completed the top five most uncomfortable scenarios on the road.
  • But the research also revealed 24 percent of drivers feel less confident now than before the pandemic, as a result of driving less over the last 18 months, with 16 percent going as far as to say they have ‘forgotten’ how to drive.
  • The stats emerged in a study by flexible car insurance firm Cuvva, which has partnered with YouTube sensation DGN Driving School, to launch a competition offering rusty drivers the chance to win a free refresher driving lesson.
  • Cuvva spokesperson and CEO, Freddy Macnamara, said: “Our research reveals there are many nervous drivers across the UK, with Londoners and those from Norwich indexing most highly.
  • But the study found 36 percent think their driving has generally worsened over the last 18 months as they have spent less time on the road.
  • As a result, 15 percent think it took them ‘weeks’ to get back up to speed once they started driving again following the lockdowns.
