The car brand Ford shows us a few data too sad collected for a study, and just say sad to call it a soft way. The study relates to the university students from different european countries with your driving, and, not to be that university students of Spanish respondents have taken the survey messing around, the Spanish suspended in a clear manner in the section of mixing alcohol and driving, like the French.
In this study we have interviewed a total of 6.500 university students from Germany, Spain, France, Italy and the United Kingdom. In him, many young respondents recognize that they use their mobile phones while driving, exceeding speed limits, and some of them, say driving under the influence of alcohol. Let’s look at the percentages of each section:
Of the respondents (in all the european countries listed above), 43% admitted to have sent text messages while driving, 38% have used mobile applications and the 36 you have made calls. Of the total, 60 % recognize overcome the limits of speed and 13% having driven under the influence of alcohol. Are the percentages too high, but even more of the Spanish, where the percentage of college students who admit to having been behind the wheel after consuming alcohol is 18 %.
on the other hand, 48% of the young european university claim to have been tempted to drive with more passengers than permitted, the 75 % to driving after having slept very little or nothing, and 28% to hop in a car whose driver had consumed alcohol. With all these data, we are not surprised at all that 30% of college students have admitted to have been involved in an accident of traffic.
As we said, the spaniards have the highest percentage of driving under the influence of alcohol (18 %), while italians are the most-used mobile at the wheel (49 %) and germans are more likely to exceed speed limits.
Maybe, if you give more talks of awareness in institutes and universities of the consequences that may result in these practices, and if, in the colleges and institutes established a subject of road safety, traffic accidents would be the leading cause of death among young people around the world. In Europe, young people have almost double the chances of dying in a traffic accident than the average european.
