Men frightened of women's driving (UK)
A study by market research firm OnePoll.com 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 OnePoll.com 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.
