Hope For Drivers

Following reports of increases in car-related accidents and deaths in the UK, it’s been suggested by MPs that the driving age should be raised from 17 to 18. Not that it will affect any of us now, but it’s true that many young drivers need more experience on the roads. Psychologists at Nottingham University are putting a new driving simulator into use to monitor hazard response. “The simulator is a real boon to learner drivers because they can encounter hazardous situations, and learn from them, without any actual physical risk” says Dr Lyn Jackson, an organiser of the study.
