Last Wednesday on BBC2 at 9 pm was a great programme which I would recommend anybody with or without a licence should watch. The programme is called How Safe Are Britain’s Roads. It was brilliantly well presented and not at all patronising. There were many statistics regarding crashes on the road and where these collisions took place. Interestingly they are mainly on the urban roads and at speeds of less than 20 mph.
There are also very interesting demonstrations on Electronic Stability Control and also some crazy thing that stops the car before you hit a pedestrian! Totally well worth a watch so try and catch it on I-Player before it disappears.
This Wednesday, BBC2 are showing the second part to this programme which is focussed at the driver. They will explore the danger surrounding the use of mobile phones whilst driving and they will also be testing a vehicle that drives itself. I wonder what a driving examiner would make of that!
I hope many of you will watch these programmes and enjoy them as much as I did. If you like Top Gear you will like these.
