  • Which aspect of driving standards needs most improvement?

In a recent survey by GEM Motoring Assist, tailgating was highlighted at the most dangerous situation when driving on UK motorways. However, this got us thinking - why do people tailgate?

We think there could be several reasons. Firstly, people may tailgate in congestion caused by other drivers not moving over and letting people by. It's a common problem, often known as lane-hogging or middle-lane driving.

Another reason could be drivers not exercising due care whilst driving, for instance being on their mobile phone or eating.
