Delivery drivers took the next spot on the list with 13% of voters deeming them the safest drivers followed closely by coach drivers at 11% and recently passed drivers made fifth place with 10% of the vote.

From the survey these drivers were named the most dangerous drivers within the UK.
Also questioned about which gender is most encountered during unsafe incidents, 80% of those surveyed said male drivers. With age gaps, those between 25-35 were voted most likely to drive dangerously by 49% of those taking the survey, this could be due to increased stress in their lifestyle.

Every individual surveyed was also questioned on their own driving skills and abilities. Everyone who took the survey stated that they considered themselves to be safe drivers on the roads.
