IAM calls for 'country roads' element of driving test

The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) has asked for a rural A-roads section to be added to the driving test, as stats show that 82% of rural fatalities happen on them, compared to 18% on rural motorways and dual carriageways.

According to an IAM report about rural roads, of the nine people that die on Britain's roads every day, six of them are on rural ones. Two-thirds of the rural road crashes happen on non-motorways with 60- or 70mph speed limits.
