Almost a quarter of motorists fail to identify common warning signs on the roads of Britain, a new study has found.

The Co-operative Young Driver Insurance discovered that one in five incorrectly thought the National Speed Limit notice meant "no access", while 36 per cent did not recognise no stopping signs.

Amy Kilmartin, young driver insurance manager at The Co-operative, said: "Our research shows that most people think they drive better than other motorists, despite admitting to getting distracted behind the wheel as well as not knowing what some of the most common road signs mean."

Ms Kilmartin went on to say that most people believe poor driving is not something they're guilty of.

People who are unfamiliar with safety signs should ensure they educate themselves with online resources, or they could increase their chances of being in an accident.

Misunderstanding a notice could prove fatal, meaning a little research could be vital.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801536517-ADNFCR
