Driving on the motorway is getting worse by the year. There are just too many vehicles for the present infrastructures.

It's not helped by the fact that 99.9% of the population have never had a motorway lesson.

If you look at the amount of traffic that uses the motorways in comparison to the number of incidents you'll find it to be a miniscule proportion.
Accidents happen, regardless of how slowly we drive or how big the gap to the next car is. My proposal would be no motorway after test until lessons had been had with an approved instrutor, not your dad, & a further test had been passed.
