The government has to encourage better driving to reduce accidents, one expert has claimed, while some may also buy oxygen to prevent fatigue while on the road.
Peter Rodger, chief driving examiner at the Institute of Advanced Motorists - a UK road safety charity - noted policies need to be introduced that aid better driving practices.
He would like to see "some form of professional development" included, to ensure motorists are constantly being taught about how to improve.
For those who want to make sure they are as alert as possible behind the wheel, bringing portable oxygen along for the ride is one option.
It means oxygen enriched air can then be taken to prevent fatigue from developing when on long journeys.
Mr Rodger wants to see the voluntary sector get involved by supporting bodies already working in the road safety sector, while employers should also "do their bit".
