Survey finds a third of women prefer to take a backseat when it comes to driving… despite most thinking they’re a better driver than their partner

84% of men do the driving despite women being the better driver

A NEW study has revealed that as much as a third of women prefer to take a backseat when it comes to going for a drive with their partner.

That’s despite 74% of women believing that they are the best behind the wheel in the relationship.

The research by car club company Ubeeqo found that a quarter admitted to believing that their partner has a better sense of direction than them while 20% backed down and confessed that they believe their partner is the safer driver.

The inequality in relationships when it comes to driving was reinforced by the men surveyed.

A quarter of them agreed that they believe their partner prefers to be a passenger and 14% believe themselves to know the roads better than their other half.

In rarer cases where the women in the relationship is the dominant driver (16%), 20% admit that they are so only because of insurance purposes!

Henrik Jensen, UK Managing Director of Ubeeqo, said: “The fact that women are taking a back seat when it comes to driving despite being deemed the better driver with less accidents surprises me.

“Women are, in so many aspects of everyday life equalling with men and the car seems to be the one area where this isn’t happening.”
