Survey reveals women drivers make men nervous

Survey reveals women drivers make men nervous
British research company Onepoll.com surveyed over 3000 men focusing on their attitude towards women drivers. Results showed men often pushed their feet down involuntarily when their wife or partner was late to hit the brakes.

Other men revealed they regularly spent part of a journey gripping the edges of the passenger seat.

A spokesperson from Onepoll.com said in a news.com.au report, "the study showed that most men felt they were better drivers than the women in their lives. They [men] believe they concentrate a lot better, read road situations more quickly and clearly and have better reactions."

It was also found that 20% of couples have arguments about the other one's driving ability.

And 1 in 10 men felt it necessary to ask their wife to pull over so they could take the wheel.

What do you think of these results? Do Australian men share the same sentiments?
