The study, conducted with 800 people, has revealed that most drivers blame anyone but themselves for bad driving with 98% saying that they drive safer than the average driver.

About 35% believe that the roads have more dangerous drivers than safe ones, whereas 1% believed that the roads are mostly filled with safe drivers.

The research found that 31% drivers feel safer while driving a car in comparison to other vehicles, while 5% feel safest when being a passenger in a car that somebody else was driving.

Almost 7% thought that it was least safe when being in the driver’s seat.
