 UK Survey Finds That 1 in 3 Men Feel 'Unsafe' When Their Partners are at the Wheel

Almost one in every three men whom a UK study polled admitted to feeling unsafe when their partners were driving.

The study, which was conducted among 3000 men by OnePoll.com, also found that one in five couples have argued due to the other one's driving.


While one in ten said that they had been forced to grab the steering wheel as their partner took her eyes off the road and careered towards the central reservation.

"Most feel they are better drivers than the women in their lives," the Telegraph quoted a spokesman for OnePoll.com, an online market research giant as saying.

"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 spokesman added.

The study also claimed that men's biggest complaints were that children, scenery or other motorists too easily distract women.

Other grumbles included allowing the car to "roll" from side to side instead of keeping it in a straight line and not staying away from rumble strips.

Flicking the accelerator, which results in a stop-start feel to the ride, also came high on the list as did getting too close to cars before overtaking.
