Road Rage - What get´s you riled up?

Road Rage - What get´s you riled up?

Road Rage – What gets us riled up?

Insurance firm 1st central have conducted research into what annoys us the most on the road and here’s what they found …………..

A MASSIVE 9 out of 10 motorists reported suffering from road rage and the number 1 behaviour that gets us the most annoyed was drivers who change lanes dangerously with 68.4% of the vote see below for all the other bad behaviours that wind us up…………

2. Drivers who do not indicate before manoeuvres -  68.4%

3. Drivers who use a mobile phone while driving -  67.5%

4. Drivers who tailgate – 64%

5. Drivers who pull out of side roads without having right of way – 59%

6. Cyclists who are not paying attention to the road e.g jumping traffic lights – 54%

7. Drivers of large vehicles who drive unsafely on the road – 42%

8. Pedestrians who are not paying attention to the cars on the road – 42%

9. Slow drivers 40%

10. Traffic jams 29%

Worryingly even though 67.5% of the 2000 drivers questioned said other drivers using their phones was a source of anger - over a quarter admitted to using their phone while they were behind the wheel and even more worryingly 2% of drivers said they found it difficult to drive without checking their phone.  1 in 25 drivers went one step further and admitted to taking selfies while on the road.

There was some regional variation as in Scotland tailgating was the number o 1 annoyance yet in Wales using a phone while driving took the top spot!

And sorry boys but there is a gender difference men are more likely to break the law as over a quarter said they would use their phones while driving compared to only 1 in 8 women!
