Men frightened of women's driving (UK)

The men in the UK are left trembling in the front passenger seat when their partner drives, according to a new poll.

A study by market research firm has exposed that 10% of men have been forced to grasp the steering wheel because their partner had lost concentration and drive towards the central reservation.

An spokesman said: 'Most men feel they are better drivers than the women in their lives. They believe they concentrate a lot better, read road situations more quickly and clearly, and have better reactions’.

'One in five even went as far as to say they were never able to relax when their other half is driving.'

The research also revealed that 20% of couples have quarrelled about the quality of the other's driving skills. Men's biggest disapproval of their partner's driving was that they were very easily sidetracked by children, scenery, or other drivers. 1 in 10 men also confessed to asking their partner to pull over, so that they could take the wheel.

Top 10 criticisms about women's driving:

1 - Shortage of concentration

2 - Braking too late

3 - Flicking the accelerator

4 - Not avoiding rumble strips

5 - Getting too close to other cars

6 - Braking too hard

7 - Fiddling with the stereo

8 - Failure to indicate

9 - Going too fast

10 - Sticking to the middle lane
