Jaguar Drivers Overtake BMWs To Become Britain’s Worst Drivers
Britain’s worst driving habits revealed
We recently conducted a survey on Britain’s driving habits, and we’ve found that Jaguar drivers are the worst in Britain! They admitted to offences such as using their
phones while driving, not wearing seatbelts and speeding.
A shocking 85% of Jaguar owners questioned admitted to speeding, 71% said they regularly fail to indicate and 50% confessed they are guilty of jumping traffic lights.
This comes a week after a study by the RAC revealed that failing to indicate was voted the most inconsiderate behaviour on UK roads.
Although BMW drivers were revealed to be the second most likely to speed, they came out on top for traffic offenses such as hogging the middle lane or throwing
litter from their car window.
Jaguar and BMW drivers were followed by those who drive Mitsubishis, Minis and SEATs.
Our survey of 2,000 British motorists revealed that the more responsible drivers were those who owned a Volvo, Skoda or Nissan. However, drivers of these cars were also the most likely to use their phone while driving, with 9 out of 10 Skoda owners admitting to the offence.
Overall, 59% of drivers admitted to speeding, with 14% committing the offence every day. 14% of drivers also confessed to parking in places they shouldn’t, including disabled spots and parent and child spaces.
We also discovered that a quarter of British drivers regularly use their phone while driving, with 2% even checking their social media at the wheel.
One of the nation’s biggest bug bears – not indicating – is committed by 43% of drivers, and 5% do it every day.
It’s shocking to see just how many people potentially drive dangerously. 80% of drivers we surveyed admitted to committing at least one of these offenses, whether that be speeding or littering.
It’s crucial to abide by the laws of the road, even if your car is in perfect working order, committing driving offenses puts you and other road users in danger.
The survey also found that people from Birmingham were the worst drivers; where half of the respondents admitted to failing to indicate and over a third undertaking.
Birmingham was followed by those in Swansea, Gloucester and London.
