Consider yourself a risk taker?

OVER three quarters of 18 to 24 year olds admit they buckle to social pressures causing them to make decisions they later regret, new research reveals. Furthermore, ˝ said they would join a friendship group that was popular even though they didn't like the people in it.

Young males are more likely to take risks...

The research also exposes the difference between genders when taking risks and making poor decisions with 11% of young men, that's compared to 5% of women agreeing that they took risks all the time. The results also show that when women do take risks, they are three times as likely to regret their decision compared to men.

Attitudes towards uninsured driving...

Young people's attitudes towards risks are particularly alarming when it comes to road safety. Uninsured and 'hit and run' drivers kill around 120 people and injure 29,000 every year; uninsured driving is a serious issue that needs addressing.

The survey highlights the risks young people are taking when it comes to car insurance:-

1 in 4 of 18 to 24 year olds admit that they have considered not taking out car insurance to save money.

A 3rd of men aged 18 to 24 years state that they have considered not taken out car insurance to save money.

When asked if they had ever got in a car with a friend who didn't have the correct car insurance, around double the amount of men (20%) compared to women (11%) admit that they have and regretted it.

Ashton West OBE, MIB Chief Executive, says:- "We want to avoid millennials regretting their decisions particularly when it comes to taking a risk on car insurance. - Our aim is to get young people talking to each other about the serious issue of uninsured driving. Our new video as part of our Gone in Seconds campaign aims to get their attention and at the same time highlights 1 of the consequences."
