It's Official: Women Are More Careful Drivers Than Men

Road Angel


Recent research from leading driver safety company Road Angel confirms what many of us suspected and the insurance companies have known for ages: women are the safer drivers. The Road Angel survey* reveals that nearly 10% fewer women have points on their licence compared to men. To redress the balance, men should clearly be looking at the new Navigator series from Road Angel.

For years, Road Angel has produced market leading in-car systems that warn drivers of accident blackspots, primary school locations and safety cameras. Their products are proven to reduce accidents by up to 50%** and speeding endorsements by up to 74%**. The new Road Angel Navigators deliver this invaluable peace of mind in a whole new way, combining the UK 's most comprehensive and sophisticated safety camera warning system with state-of-the-art satellite navigation - it's two great products in one.

  • Road Angel Navigators make satellite navigation quick and easy, with full postcode search, clear displays on a large colour screen and helpful voice instructions. They allow you to save your regular journeys and will also automatically re-plan your route if you are faced with diversions or traffic hold-ups.
  • At the same time, the award-winning Road Angel Driver Safety System alerts you to approaching hazards, guarding against the momentary lapse in concentration that could prove so costly. The alert system operates together with the satnav, or can be just used on its own when you are on familiar ground.

And this is no clunky, chunky gadget. The Navigator is lightweight and compact enough to fit into your jacket pocket and can easily be swapped between cars. The built-in charger means it can be powered from the cigarette lighter and doesn't need to be hard wired into the vehicle.

Priced from just £249.99, the Road Angel Navigator series will be a godsend to get you around the country and keep you alert to potential dangers ahead.
