A Guide to Safe Road Trips
Road trips are a popular holiday. In fact, a survey conducted on behalf of Ford found that 73% of Americans prefer road tripping to flying and would happily add six and a half hours onto their travelling time to avoid the airport. But why do we love road trips so much?
- 69% said it’s the scenic views
- 69% because of the freedom to stop whenever
- 57% felt it was packing whatever you want
Across the pond, European travellers love a road trip too. Cars (private or rented) are the main means of transport for tourists, used for 65% of all trips. According to Eurostat, cars were particularly predominant in:
- Slovenia (84% of trips)
- Portugal (80%)
- The Czech Republic (79%)
- Spain (77%)
- Bulgaria (75%)
- Hungary (74%)
- France (74%)
Ford conducted another survey of over 2,000 children in Europe to find out what annoyed kids about car journeys. Turns out it’s having to endure their parents’ singing! They also complained about badly behaved moms and dads who shout at other drivers, swear and pick their noses.
Facts About Safe Driving in Europe
- The country with the highest number of deaths caused by driving is Romania. As many as 99 people out of every 1,000,000 will die on an annual basis as a result of a driving accident.
- The EU is behind its target. In 2013, the EU set itself a target of lowering the number of deaths on their roads by 50%. So far, they’re behind that target. By 2017 they aimed to have reduced fatal accidents by 38%. In reality, there was a 20% reduction.
- But let’s not be too harsh – that 20% is a great step. In fact, current statistics actually represent the best figures the EU has ever seen. With an average death rate of 49-in-a-million, things are slowly moving in the right direction.
- Should we count Russia? Russia isn’t part of the EU. In fact, its inclusion as a part of Europe as a whole is still something which is debated by some. Interestingly, death rates here are excessively high when compared to other nations in the same region. Their figure sits at just over 200 people dead per million inhabitants.
Interesting European Driving Laws
A handful of European countries have come up with some unexpected driving rules:
- A warning triangle in France. Every car in France is required to carry a warning triangle. Until recently, it had been proposed that all vehicles would also be required to carry a breathalyser.
- Stay within the lines in Iceland. In the Scandinavian country of Iceland, rules have been enforced which require you to stay within the lines when you drive on any road. This aims to protect the endangered plants across the nation – including alongside roads.
- Don’t drink anything while driving in Cyprus. In Cyprus, it’s illegal to drink anything while behind the wheel. And when we say anything, we mean anything. Fizzy drinks, milk and even water is forbidden. The government feels it distracts too much from the road.
- Spare pair of specs in Spain. If you’re required to wear prescription lenses when driving in Spain, it’s your duty to carry a second pair with you at all times. After all, who knows when they might break?
Be sure to watch out when you’re in any of these countries.
