Audi Drivers Are The Worst And Least Considerate Motorists, Study Finds

Audi Drivers Are The Worst And Least Considerate Motorists, Study Finds

It's been decided once and for all (kind of) - Audi drivers are the worst. Hey, don't shoot the messenger.

A study by Van Monster found that owners of the German automobiles are the least competent, considerate and honest. On the road, that is. Not in general.

The secondhand van retailer surveyed 2,000 drivers for the study and found that Audi drivers were also the least likely to own up to causing damage, parking across two spaces or parking on double yellow lines outside schools. In total, Audi drivers were found to be the most likely to commit 17 out of 33 driving misdemeanours.

Seat drivers were actually found to be the most prone to road rage, while Volvo drivers lived up to their stereotype, proving to be the safest and most responsible, closely followed by Hyundai and Honda drivers. As well as being the least likely to be at fault, Volvo drivers were also found to be the most likely to 'fess up when they are at fault - so basically the exact opposite of Audi drivers.

BMW drivers were perhaps the surprise of the bunch, though, and weren't found to be the most likely to commit any road-based offence.

Range Rover drivers were the most likely to open their car door onto someone else's and knock or break a wing mirror on another car - although maybe that is something to do with the size of Range Rovers.

In a different (but very similar) study by Van Monster, the sweariest drivers were revealed to be Mazda drivers, with 67 percent admitting to cursing at the wheel. Meanwhile, our old friend the Audi driver was found to be the most likely to shout at other drivers, with 52 percent admitting to doing so.

Audi drivers were also second most likely to throw stuff out of the window, just topped by Nissan drivers - the filthy animals (apparently).

A study last year by GoCompare also returned 'interesting' results for Audi drivers, finding them to be the second worst drivers after BMW drivers and slightly better than Mercedes drivers, who rocked up in third place.

Matt Oliver, spokesperson for GoCompare Car Insurance, commented on the findings, saying: "While it may be no surprise that higher-powered, luxury cars are the marques of choice for some of the more dangerous drivers on the road, it's not true of all owners of these makes."

So please, despite all the above evidence, don't judge a driver by the make of their car.

LADbible has contacted Audi for comment.
