New research has shown that just over a third of young adults in the UK have never cleaned their own car, citing the effort it takes and being unable to do a ‘good job’ as the top reasons why. Furthermore it was found that those that do pay to have their car cleaned usually shell out £16 each time. This means that many in this demographic will spend £192 each year to have their cars cleaned ‘professionally’.
Britons pick up so many bad habits that the majority believe they would not pass their driving test again, if they had to re-take it, according to new research; as many confess to driving single-handedly and using gadgets.
A new poll suggests that more than two-thirds of British motorists do not know what some road signs mean. The study also indicated that 86 per cent of Britons will not try to learn anything about foreign road signs before they rent a car abroad. The UK-based website VoucherCodesPro.co.uk polled 2,109 British adults, all of whom were aged 25 or over and revealed to researchers that they had been driving for at least five years. Respondents also revealed that they had rented a car abroad in the last two years. The survey was conducted as part of research into the attitudes of Britons while driving and how seriously they take road rules.
