7 out of 10 children see their Father’s as risk takers.
The age-old stereotype of women being worse drivers than men seems to have been quashed by a new survey of their most frequent passengers – children.
In the survey, children claim that their mothers are better drivers than their fathers – it is not just their driving that makes women best, but because they have better in-car entertainment.
Four in 10 children say they feel safer with their mother at the wheel during a rush-hour journey to the shops or the school gate, according to the survey.
Fathers are seen as risk-takers by seven in 10 children who think they are more likely to speed, suffer from road rage and have the most near-misses with other vehicles.
The Budget car hire firm polled 1,000 children between the ages of six and 15 for the survey.
