6.4 On the road
The Government has introduced a wide range of traffic features aimed at improving safety over the years, some more successfully than others.
Almost three quarters think motorway and dual carriageway advanced warning signs have made the roads safer.
68% say speed awareness signs have improved safety though a significant minority at 26% think they have had no impact at all.
Information boards on motorways similarly polarise motorists, with 55% thinking they improve safety but 39% thinking they have no impact.
Average speed cameras are accepted by 46% of motorists as a way of improving safety against 38% who think they have had no impact.
Speed cameras also prove divisive. Almost one third think speed cameras have made driving safer, but the same percentage say they have made it less safe and 39% think they have had no impact either way.
