British kids criticize parents' driving

UPI News Service, 05/24/2007 

Britain's Privilege Insurance Company driving survey shows that many children consider their parents to be bad drivers.

The survey, given to 500 people aged 10 to 16 years old, revealed that 47 percent said they felt unsafe while driving with their mother and 39 percent felt unsafe with their father, The Daily Mail reported.

Almost 5 percent of those surveyed said that felt scared when climbing into a car with their parents.

Out of 500 respondents, 9 percent had been in an accident's with their mother and 8 percent had gotten into an accident with their father, the newspaper said.

The children pointed out that their mothers and fathers were each bad at different things.

The most common complaint against mothers was 24 percent saying they were bad at parking and against fathers it was 21 percent saying they drove too fast, The Daily Mail report said.

"With almost 1-in-20 children actually scared by their parents' driving, 'grown-ups' need to drive even more carefully and follow the rules of the road," Jennifer Culley from Privilege Insurance, told The Daily Mail. "Driving safely will help to put children's minds at ease, as well as demonstrate how they should drive in the future."
