Well, it’s official. We have it on good authority that BMW motorists are the worst drivers on the road.
Now, don’t go shooting the messenger. The not-so-surprising news (let’s not pretend like this hasn’t been said before) comes from Moneybarn (a firm specialising in vehicle finance). They conducted a study on driver perceptions through a survey of 4,000 people. Perhaps, it comes as no shock that Audi drivers came second.
The official top 5 goes as follows:
- BMW (39.1%)
- Audi (14.1%)
- White van (7.9%)
- Range Rover (4.6%)
- Ford (4.2%)
So, did you make the list?
Maybe you’re surprised about some names on there? We certainly didn’t expect Ford to appear, but then my main perception of a Ford driver is Auntie Dorothy from next door, driving her battered Ford Fiesta 2001 model down to Tesco. Actually, thinking about it, I’m not that surprised.
How did the White Van Man escape with only 7.9% of the vote? The nation must really have a problem with BMW drivers. So, if you’re driving around in one of them, you might want to be extra careful before you’re stereotyped as one of those… Well, BMW drivers.
It’s unfortunate for BMW, but this isn’t the first time they’ve come out on top for having the worst drivers. In a similar study with GoCompare back in October 2018, they took first place then, too. And that one was with only 2000 people from the UK!
It’s a debate often heard at dinner parties, isn’t it?
Who is worst: BMW drivers or Audi drivers? What’s your take on it? We would love to know.
