Only 69% of Drivers Know

The findings of a new Survey of 599 American drivers indicate a clear gap in knowledge as it concerns safe driving.

Just 37% of drivers rated their knowledge of traffic laws, road signs, and adherence to safe driving habits as "very high," according to a new survey from Progressive Insurance.
Only 69% knew that pedestrians crossing with the light have the right of way
When it came to basic driving rules, here's the 'good' news:
  • 85% of drivers understood how to properly change a lane.
  • 76% of drivers understood what orange construction signs and cones mean
And here's the bad news:
  • Only 69% knew that pedestrians crossing with the light have the right of way
  • Only 66% said it is never okay to cross a double yellow line
  • 34% of drivers say they sometimes intentionally stay in the left lane
7% admitted they regularly stay in the left lane to punish another driver
