Tailgating terror

According to research by Brake and Direct Line, over half of drivers (53%) are risking fatal accidents on motorways by driving too close to the vehicle in front.
Male drivers are more likely to tailgate than women, with a horrifying three in ten male drivers doing so on a weekly basis.

Brake opposes raising the motorway speed limit, currently being considered by government. It warns that most drivers’ who fail to keep a safe distance adds credence to their case. At 80mph, stopping distances are 27% greater than at 70mph (122m on average compared to 96m at 70mph), meaning drivers are less able to stop in time in an emergency and avoid devastating crashes.

Jonathan Hare, Managing Director of JM Hare Services Limited said, “There is no higher priority than the safety of our drivers.

“Tailgating doesn’t get our drivers to their destinations any faster. We have a strict policy regarding the distance our drivers maintain from the vehicle in front of them.”

Get ready for fuel lobby

On Wednesday 7 March 2012 at 1.00pm in Old Palace Yard, opposite the Houses of Parliament there will be a mass lobby of politicians for their supporters to challenge their local MP for a cut in fuel duty on the inaugural National FairFuel Day. Find out more by clicking here.

A key report published by the Centre for Economics and Business Research illustrates a reduction of 2.5p per litre in fuel duty would create 180k jobs in the first 12 months.

Quentin Willson, National spokesman for FairFuelUK, said “We’ve been saying this all along and now we can prove it.  This conclusively backs up our claim that a cut in fuel duty will boost the economy without harming Treasury revenues.  Quite rightly, the Chancellor’s priority is on stimulating growth in order to pay down the deficit.  Here is a way to do both.

“The Government now needs to embrace these findings and follow through on the 1p cut they made last year. The report gives economic rigour to what our supporters have known for months.  Cutting fuel duty will boost growth, create jobs, and reduce welfare bills. It is also fair and progressive as it will give most help to those on low income."
