Survey Reveals Brits' Driving Habits

In a new YouGov survey, it was revealed that men were four times as likely to drive over 100mph on the motorway than women.

Of the 1724 British drivers surveyed, 34% of men admitted that they have driven over 100mph on the motorway, compared to just 8% of female drivers. 

24% of all drivers admitted that speeding was their worst habit, with the over-55 age group having a real need for speed. 

141 drivers over 55 years old admitted to driving in excess of 100mph, while only16 people in the 18-24 age bracket had broken the 100mph barrier. 

Knowing when to stop

Only 35% of those surveyed knew the correct stopping distance for a car travelling at 30mph, with 10% of people believing that only 20ft was required (rather than the recommended 75ft). 

Dealing with a flat tyre

62% of men surveyed said they would change their own flat tyre if they were driving alone, compared to only 10% of women. 20% of women would count on a family member to change the tyre, while only 1% of men chose this option.  

All figures, unless otherwise stated, are from YouGov Plc.Total sample size was 2185 adults, of which 1724 were drivers. Fieldwork was undertaken from 12th-13th February 2015. The survey was carried out online. The figures have been weighted and are representative of all GB adults (aged 18+).
