§ 39. Mr. Renton
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he is aware that the road accident statistics of 1952 reveal that the largest single contributory factor in road accidents was the habit which drivers of vehicles have of turning to the right without due care; and what steps he proposes to take in order to cure this habit.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
I agree that turning to the right without due care is one of the most frequent factors in road152W accidents. I will continue to encourage better habits by continually stressing this danger in the driving test, in the leaflet "Hints on the Driving Test" issued free to learner drivers, and in the new Highway Code.
