Over the last 80 years, our driving entitlement has changed dramatically to suit the driving habits, vehicles, infrastructure, and attitude to the transportation of the day. We’ve picked out four milestones that have shaped our entitlement.
Entitlement to drive a motor vehicle was introduced into law via the compulsory testing of drivers. Various road traffic acts from that point on, increased the need for control based upon the cause and effect of the driving experience, from the driver, the pedestrian and the authority’s points of view. This included speed, style of driving, alcohol consumption and other elements that were needed to ensure that a driver was safe and safety conscious whilst out on the road.
