A major factor in an estimated 25% of all crashes, distractions come in many forms, sometimes occurring suddenly, sometimes slowly taking over your attention. Learn practical ways you can avoid contributing to this statistic.

Driver fatigue is one of the hidden killers on our roads. Learn how to recognise the signs of fatigue and the onset of its result, drowsiness, how to avoid it from occurring, and what to do if you do experience it while driving.
Drugs and Alcohol
The law is one thing. Safety is another - the law does not tell you whether you’re fit to drive, only whether it is legal for you to drive. Learn the pitfalls of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol - even legal prescription drugs - and the best strategy for staying safe.
Does driving faster really get you there any sooner? The truth might surprise you. A speed is safe when you allow for the driving conditions and can stop in the visible distance ahead. Discover the factors that affect these two crucial safety measures, and the influence they have - separately, and in combination - on your safety and your fuel consumption.

Crashes – Internal Risk Factors
A road crash is not an accident – it happens because of the way a driver reacts when faced with a hazardous situation.
