Stereotypes on the Road

Stereotypes on the Road
24/06/2015

Our fuel management system may protect you from wasting precious money on a long, cross country journey, but- as much as we wish it would- it can’t protect you from encountering those stereotypical drivers. We’ve created a small list of these beautiful stereotypes for you to look out for on the road. Think of it as a fun game of Eye Spy! Women Drivers You’re minding your own business sitting in the service station car park and in rolls a woman driver. You have your doubts, watching her try to park her Ford KA in a busy car park, especially as a line of cars have started queuing up behind her. We all know the stereotype of women drivers, uncertain motorists who can’t handle a ‘man’s’ car with the same efficiency- let’s not discuss the stereotypical parking skills either. The truth behind it is that these stereotypes aren’t true. A study by Privilege Insurance removed the gender stereotypes and proved that women, whether you like it or not, were the better drivers! Out of 50 people, the survey showed that women were more careful and more generous when it came to driving on the roads. Now that may not stop the odd one or two being unable to park straight, but let’s be honest, not all men can park straight either… - See more at: http://www.fueltek.co.uk/stereotypes-on-the-road/#sthash.l02MLOVi.dpuf

OAP’s If a pensioner is on the road beware; a stereotypical pensioner is labelled as a lane hog and a slow coach who won’t move out of the way of anybody and enjoys taking their time. We wouldn’t let this stereotype delude you, there are some pensioners who are brilliant at driving; after all they’ve had a lot of time to perfect their skills. They know the ins and outs of the roads better than a lot of youths, let’s not forget they’ve more than likely been driving longer than you. According to nidirect.gov if you’re over the age of 70, you must have your driving license renewed every three years! So, next time you’re driving from coast to coast and see a pensioner in the outside lane, remove the thought that they’re doing 63 miles per hour on purpose, these people deserve to take their time. - See more at: http://www.fueltek.co.uk/stereotypes-on-the-road/#sthash.l02MLOVi.dpuf
