Road Safety Week is the UK’s biggest road safety event, coordinated annually by Brake, the road safety charity.
Good Driver Eyesight Matters
- Around 2,900 road casualties are caused by poor vision every year in the UK.
- It’s estimated that 2-3% of drivers don’t meet the legal minimum standards for driving. And 12% of those who are required to wear glasses, admit that they sometimes drive without them.
- In 2011, 5,916 drivers had their licence revoked for failing to meet minimum eyesight standards.
- Did you know that you can lose 40% of your vision before noticing it?
