The worst speeders? Definitely not under-25s!
We've all heard the boy racer stereotype and it's one that particularly annoys us at ingenie. We've proved time and time again that young and new drivers can be safe drivers.
So we feel a bit smug at new figures that show who the worst offenders really are.
Young drivers only get fourth place
Yep, drivers under 25 are pretty far down the list of speeding age groups - 2.1% have been charged with speeding.
The group with the most speeding offences is 25 to 34. In the last 12 months, 2.4% of drivers in that age range have been charged with speeding.
Mum and Dad are also worse than their children: drivers between 45 and 54 have the largest total for speeding offences at 183,912.
It's not a competition but...
Hey, speeding is speeding. No one should be doing it.
But it's nice to hear that young drivers are doing better than their older road companions, especially as speeding is so dangerous and something our Driver Behaviour Unit does a lot of work on.
So next time you hear someone moaning about young drivers - hit them with some sweet stats.
