I Over 90 per cent of road accidents are caused by human error, for instance by falling asleep, and it's an error that kills around
4,000 people every year. This
Watchdog special investigates the behaviour that turns ordinary drivers into killers, and asks: "How safe is your driving?"
The programme has conducted the largest-ever survey of driving habits, and concludes that most of us are not as skilled as we think we are.
When picked at random, seven out of ten experienced drivers fail the driving test! Producer Simon Walton

Patrick Malahide , currently appearing in BBC2' s Middlemarch, returns as Ngaio Marsh 's upper-crust 1940s detective in a special one-off film that follows on from last year's series. "He's extremely intelligent, very mercurial, very old-fashioned," says Malahide of Alleyn. "You would be foolish to make an enemy of him, even though he would never resort to bullying tactics and he'd be unfailingly polite."
Alleyn is busy investigating the discovery of a dead body in a drainage ditch outside the home of Percival Pyke Period (played by John Gielgud ) in the quiet backwater of Chalfont Green.
