ARE OTHER ROAD USERS DRIVING YOU CRAZY?
Do you consider yourself to be a courteous driver? Personally, I feel being polite is especially important on the road, but that isn't to say everyone feels the same way. In fact, according to a survey by LeaseCar, 93% of drivers believe they are courteous on the roads, but the degrees of just how courteous is quite different.
The results of their interactive driving map reveals a few surprises. Absurdly, Greater London drivers consider themselves among the road's most polite people, while there is a 7% difference between the number of courteous motorists in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Gender also plays a part in behaviour, specifically in how differently men and women are treated. Thankfully, almost 40% of drivers claim to have been good Samaritans and at some point helped someone on the roadside. Over the last decade, most of us are under the impression that road courteousness has significantly declined.
Even the most experienced of drivers could learn a thing or two from the results of the study, which I found to be quite the eye-opener.
