The Department of Transport is trying to counter these very points through its advertising. But everyone must help. Children have to be taught at school to be responsible road users, and driving instructors must emphasise attitude, rather than just the mechanical skills of driving a car. In a 'car culture' that must change, the responsible elements of car ownership need stressing, not the performance limits to which a car can be taken.
If the attitude to the way we use cars can be changed, the roads will be safer for us all.
