A report was carried out amongst children aged between 5-16 years to establish who they thought were better drivers, their mum or their dad.
The report published by the GEM Motoring Assist found that the children interviewed preferred mums driving. Mums were found to be the more considerate driver, less likely to suffer road rage and less likely to weave in and out of traffic. However, their children did admit that mums got flustered when it came to basic manoeuvres and were more likely to stall the car.
Dads didn’t win the battle as their kids thought that they were more aggressive drivers, lost their tempers quickly and drove too fast.
60% of the children interviewed said that they were more relaxed when mum was driving.
The report seemed to suggest that children are aware of their parents driving and it’s important not to expose them to bad habits and poor driving.
