A video uploaded by a driving instructor shows how prevalent bad driving is on UK roads.
The compilation comes from a dashboard-mounted camera used by a driving instructor on the roads in and around Liverpool.
Ashley Neal uploads footage of ‘driving fails’ to her YouTube channel and this compilation shows some of the worst examples of driving she has encountered. Not only do these clips show how inattentive many drivers are, they also show an infuriating lack of respect for learner drivers.
In one clip, a Ford Focus crosses into the learner’s lane as the pair turn right. In another, a Renault Clio blasts over a crossroads without stopping, forcing the learner driver to perform an emergency braking manoeuvre.
Studies show that 22 per cent of accidents could be caused by driver distraction, while Google claims that human error plays a role in 94 per cent of crashes in the US.
