When Did You Last Get an Eye Test?

 

MultiquoteTaxi have recently partnered with Brake - a road safety charity who work to raise awareness of the importance of road safety in the community and to support the victims of road traffic accidents.

Facts about vision

  • 1 /4 of drivers have not had an eye test in two years.
  • Estimated annual cost of poor driver vision: 2,900 casualties, £33 million.

 

Making sure your vision is good enough to drive

  • If you find that you’re unable to read number plates clearly of find that your vision is poor at long distances then you should get your eyes tested immediately
  • Glasses can be a distraction when you’re driving so you might consider switching to contact instead
  • You should always get your eyes tested by a professional and make sure you get glasses/contacts that are comfortable for you.
