CAN YOU PICK THE KILLER IN THIS LINE-UP?
WHICH of these usual suspects is the real menace on our roads? Not the tradie, P-plater or the elderly.
New statistics from the Centre for Road Safety reveal middle aged men are the most dangerous.
Steve Philp, 42, said he wasn’t surprised men his age are responsible for so many crashes.
“Men feel like they’re the greatest drivers in the world,” he said. “I absolutely am at my best (when the family is in the car) ... I don’t want the wrath of my wife.”
Veronica Tannous, 19, does not fit the stereotype of a risk-taking P-plater and says she’s a “very safe and responsible driver”. “I’m very aware of what’s around me and I don’t try to take risks.”
Plumber Jon Tsingolis, 28, sees a lot of bad behaviour in his six days a week on the road.
“I’ve seen massive accidents and had people crashing into me. In the mornings on the freeway they swerve in and out of traffic.”
Graham Huddy, 76, says his driving is “average” but no longer drives into the city. Velda McGee, 79, also won’t drive in the city due to Sydney’s aggressive drivers.
Meanwhile mum Natalie Urban, 35, says she’s a confident driver and feels happy driving with Max, 18 months, in the car.
