Brake Urges Motorists To Have Their Eyes Tested

The road safety charity, Brake are urging all drivers to make it their responsibility to get their eyes tested every two years.

The spokesperson for Brake, Martin Howard, has said that it is every learner driver and fully qualified motorist to check that they are still medically capable of driving.

He stated:

"Drivers who fail to take this step are taking enormous risks with their own lives, along with the lives of other road users and pedestrians"

According to research by RIAS aroudn 36% of motorists feel that drivers should have their eyes tested annually, however, only 27% have had their eyes tested in the last two years.
