National Drivers Test finds 38 Million drivers may be unfit for the roads

Do you ever get the feeling that every other driver on the road is not competent to drive? A new survey released today by insurance giant GMAC confirms what many of us already know: there are millions of American drivers who don't know the basic rules of the road. The 2010 GMAC National Drivers test found than nearly 1 in 5 drivers nationally (roughly 38 million drivers) could not pass a standard written drivers test exam. Many drivers were confused about the correct action to take when approaching a yellow traffic light, and many others were confused about safe following distances.

We all know that failure to follow the basic rules of the road can lead to accidents and injury. In addition to quizzing drivers nationally about rules of the road, the GMAC survey also requested drivers to provide information about other potentially unsafe driving habits. The survey found that many drivers continue to conduct a variety of activities behind the wheel that are distracting and dangerous, including

  • Talking on the phone
  • Eating
  • Adjusting the radio
  • Fiddling with an Ipod

The results of this survey only reinforce what safe drivers need to do to avoid an accident. Drive defensively. Assume the driver drifting around in the next lane is distracted or intoxicated.
