Getting Lost Is biggest Cause Of In-Car Fighting

arguing in carAlmost two-thirds of those questioned said that disagreements had flared up as a result of their partner’s poor navigation, with 80 per cent of women complaining that their partners never bothered to check the route before setting off, compared to 65 per cent of men who made the same complaint. More than 85 per cent claimed that they argued because the driver refused to ask for directions in time.

The next biggest cause of motoring rows was on-going family squabbles continuing in the car after leaving home, according to the survey by Halfords. The third major cause of in-car arguments was children complaining that the trip was taking too long, followed in fourth place by the way in which the driver was driving the car.

Other causes of friction included the thoughtless actions of other road-users, road conditions including traffic jams – and choice of music. Nearly seven in 10 of 2,200 people surveyed admitted that they quarrelled in the car at least once a month, while nearly one in five said they argued at least once a week.

“Whilst we have no plans to extend our services into marriage guidance, we can offer a solution to the most frequent causes of in-car rows,” said Paul McClenaghan, Halfords Commercial Director. “With our range of sat-nav systems, arguments about dreadful directions and terrible map-reading could become a thing of the past.” Telegraph.
