RICH DRIV­ERS A BIG HAZ­ARD

Daily Star - - SPICED GAMMON IN CIDER -

WEALTHY driv­ers on UK roads are more dan­ger­ous than those with less money.

When quizzed on their knowl­edge of Bri­tish driv­ing laws, peo­ple in high-earn­ing jobs, such as chief ex­ec­u­tives and sur­geons, knew con­sid­er­ably less than ca­sual labour­ers, stu­dents and the un­em­ployed.

They were also found to be three times more likely to get out their phone at the wheel.

Mark Tongue of Se­lect Car Leas­ing, which car­ried out the poll, said: “Be­ing well-off enough to af­ford a fine doesn’t mean the rules don’t ap­ply.”
