Men dread their wives’ driving, finds survey

Believe it or not, one in three men dreads getting into the car if his better half is driving, a new survey has revealed.

Wondered why?

Well, many say wives and partners brake too late and they find themselves pushing their feet down into the footwell or gripping the edges of the passenger seat, according to the survey by British market researchers ‘OnePoll.com’.

One in 10 of the 3,000 male respondents said he had been forced to grab the wheel as his partner took her eyes off the road and careered towards the central reservation of a motorway, the ‘Daily Express’ reported.

They say women are too easily distracted by children, other drivers, even scenery.

The website said: “Most men believe they concentrate a lot better than women, read situations quicker and have better reactions.”

But female-only motor insurers Sheilas’ Wheels spokeswoman Asia Yasir said: “Claims data proves women are statistically safer.”
