Eye test vital for motorists
DRIVERS are being reminded of the potentially "lethal impact" of not looking after their eyesight.
Swansea Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency has launched an online education campaign urging motorists to get more regular eye tests.
This comes after data from road safety charity Brake and Specsavers revealed that 26 per cent of drivers had not undergone an eye test in two years.
The survey also shows that one in 10 have not visited an optician for more than five years. While 3 per cent have refused to have an eye test for 10 years.
Brake deputy chief executive Julie Townsend reminded drivers of their responsibility on the roads.
She added that as well as ensuring the vehicle is roadworthy drivers also need to look after their health and fitness in order to drive.
