Most irritating?

AccuraCast Logo

 A recent survey from Salop Leisure into the most irritating road users has discovered that motorists in the West Midlands get most annoyed by cycles, farm vehicles and elderly drivers (in that order). Caravans and learner drivers, on the other hand, were found to be amongst the least irritating road users.


Main findings:
·         Over one fifth of respondents picked cyclists as the most irritating road user, and this figure shoots up to over one third amongst the 65+ age bracket;
·         37.5 percent of elderly male respondents picked cyclists as their worst enemy, but elderly women are slightly more patient, with 29.7 percent of over 65 female respondents choosing this road user.
