Feel the roads and infrastructure has improved

 

 

 

“The first thing I notice is the good things, that people in general feel that the vast infrastructure works actually pays off and the motorists directly applaud that. However, it’s concerning that people continue to feel that driving and driving habits are getting worse.

As the leading insurer in the region, I feel we have an important role to play to help overcome this and make the roads safer; we are doing this by supporting studies like the Monitor on the information side and on the action side we’re currently piloting various ways of introducing Pay How You Drive motor insurances as we can see this affects the drivers’ behaviors”
