Only around one in 10 people believe HGV drivers’ behaviour on the roads has improved since the Coronavirus pandemic began, according to a poll carried out by the AA.

The results from 19,732 respondents showed that 12% thought lorry drivers were better behaved now than before the lockdown.

A quarter (25%) thought car drivers and cyclists were worse on the roads now, although 21% thought car drivers’ behaviour had improved.

Only 10% thought there had been any improvement in cyclists.

With less traffic than normal, pedestrians topped the poll for better road-sense during the lockdown; one in four said they felt that walkers were better behaved on the road now.

Edmund King, AA president, said “Less traffic doesn’t mean that drivers should start drag-racing at traffic lights, dangerously overtaking others or ignoring the speed limits. Drivers should also leave a wide ‘social distance’ when overtaking cyclists.

“Equally, this isn’t a time for cyclists to pretend they’re in the Tour de France and ignore mini-roundabouts and stop signs.”
