Ford Drivers Most Polite on the Road

21 Jun


Owners of Ford vehicles are the most polite on the road according to a new study by MoneySupermarket.com. The price comparison company questioned over 2,000 motorists with different types of vehicles in order to determine if there is a general trend when it comes to the etiquette of motorists who particular makes of vehicles.

Although Ford drivers didn’t particularly stand out on any metric; they were consistently high on the rankings for all the set questions. For instance, 93% of the Ford driver’s questions claimed that they regularly let other motorists out of junctions and 85% claimed that they always ensure that they leave enough room when passing cyclists.

Conversely, 50% of white van drivers claimed that they never let people out of junctions and 75% stated that they purposefully never leave enough room for cyclists.

Indeed, white van drivers adhered to their well-established stereotype, turning out to be the most impolite on the road based on their responses to the questions set; appearing to be the most inconsiderate of their fellow motorists, cyclists and also pedestrians.

Unsurprisingly, Jaguar drivers also featured prominently on the most impolite drivers list; with 75% of the Jaguar owners surveyed claiming that they regularly suffer from road rage.
