Do car drivers have prejudices’?
In a recent survey conducted by Continental it was found that colour, make and cleanliness can affect a drivers behaviour towards other motorists. In a survey of 2,000 drivers, more than a third of drivers admit they allow factors such as car colour, car type and car cleanliness to affect how they behave towards other drivers.
But when I thought about my own journey into work this morning I realised that I do only let cars from the VAG (VW, Audi and Seat) group out into the traffic and that if you are driving a Range Rover you have no chance and will be sat at that junction for some time, making me one of the 27%. Sad I know but just think about your last car journey.
Sixty percent of drivers admitted to getting agitated by a sticker for a rival sports team, a cause or organisation, while drivers in “flash” cars are twice as likely not to be let out at a junction because other drivers believe ‘they think they’re it’.
The top ten of drivers we are least likely to let out into traffic are:
1. Anyone using a mobile phone
2. Performance car
3. Towing a caravan
4. Flash car
6. Taxi driver
Are you guilty of these things?
