Using Phones Whilst Driving Voted Most Hated Habit

A recent survey carried out on over 2000 UK drivers, has revealed that motorists having a chat on the phone is the UK’s most despised driving habit.

A whopping 47 per cent of those questioned have said that this is the worse driving activity, followed closely by the previous bug of tailgating at 42%.

The survey, carried out on behalf of Kwik-Fit, also shows that 35% hate those that fail to indicate, with just less than a third loathing dangerous overtakers, and just over a quarter detesting lane-hoggers.

Last minute braking, undertaking, and nervous drivers also came into the top 10, followed by slow exits from traffic lights, and ironically skipping traffic lights altogether.

In response to the survey, the director of Communications Roger Griggs has released the following statement:

“These driving habits aren’t just annoying, they are dangerous and some of them against the law. You’re four times more likely to have an accident if you use a mobile while driving, in addition to the frustration it causes for fellow motorists.

“With on-the-spot penalties for motorists who hog the middle lane, tailgate or cut up other vehicles being introduced last year, it highlights just how serious these anti-social driving behaviours are being taken.”
