The study polled 2,000 British drivers and mobile phone users in an attempt to warn people of the dangers mobile phones can cause when the user does not remain vigilant. The survey also found 16% of motorists had to swerve around pedestrians in the road. When asked about how they react when a pedestrian walks into the road in front of them, 17% said they exchange angry words or swear at them. In addition, 14% stated they would use rude gestures to get their point across. The poll also looked at differences in age groups and which is the age group most likely to walk into the road without looking. It was uncovered that eight in 10 18-24-year-olds said they had been glued to their smartphone while crossing the road; an increase of 47% when all age groups were observed. Furthermore, 18-24-year-olds were also more likely to be involved in confrontations, with 36% admitting using rude gestures, and a third stated they would use angry words or swear towards either motorists or smartphone users. Fiat also looked at ways to prevent people getting into accidents involving pedestrians and motorists, and found that parking sensors not only make it easier for drivers to park, but also might make pedestrians aware of the car. When attempting to prevent an accident occurring, just under a quarter (24%) of motorists said they had to honk their horn to make pedestrians aware of them; while 23% said they had to break heavily in order to avoid a collision. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Almost-one-in-10-UK-motorists-say-they-had-to-call-999-after-hitting-a-pedestrian-who-was-using-their-smartphone-reveals-survey-04994 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Almost-one-in-10-UK-motorists-say-they-had-to-call-999-after-hitting-a-pedestrian-who-was-using-their-smartphone-reveals-survey-04994 82% of Brits say they would struggle without a car, the highest amount since 2006, reveals survey 82% of Brits say they would struggle without a car, the highest amount since 2006: The 2021 RAC survey of motorists has revealed the number of Brits saying they heavily rely on their car is at the highest percentage in 15 years.
