Used car drivers have been advised to brush up on their safety skills, after one charity reminded them that driving is among the most dangerous things we do on a regular basis.

Emily Moxon, a spokeswoman for Brake, said people who drive uninsured are more likely to take risks and flee from the scene of a crash if they do hit somebody.

"It is vital that we see action to remove these highly irresponsible and illegal drivers from our roads," she said.

According to Brake research, 3.3 million drivers, or one in ten, have been involved in a collision with a driver who was uninsured.

"This means making sure that you drive carefully at all times and give your full attention to the road ahead," added Ms Moxon.

Additionally, recent figures from Santander showed that three in ten men and one-fifth of women have had near misses as a result of distractions, such as adjusting the car stereo or eating and drinking.ADNFCR-2576-ID-800515178-ADNFCR
