 Children Inherit 'road-rage Habits' From Parents

A new study has suggested that road-rage habits are being passed on to young drivers by their parents.

Mothers and fathers teaching their children to drive often set a bad example by drinking, using mobile phones and even falling asleep while supervising them, reports the Daily Express.

The AA survey found that the most common bad habits are not using mirrors properly, speeding and driving too close, as well as getting angry with other drivers.

AA Driving School director Simon Douglas said, "Dangerous habits are easily passed on, and it is alarming to see evidence that road rage is being passed on to another generation."

"Parents should try to set a good example with their own driving and remember to let the experts do the teaching, while they focus on helping their children gain experience," added Douglas.
