A quar­ter of chil­dren ad­mit their dad’s driv­ing scares them. Two thirds of kids say Dad is more likely to weave in and out of the traf­fic. Dads are more in­tent on get­ting from A to B as quickly as pos­si­ble, whereas mums take things slower and spend their time sing­ing or chat­ting to the kids rather than get­ting an­noyed with other driv­ers. Kids say 55 per cent of their dads have more ac­ci­dents than mums — prob­a­bly be­cause 78 per cent are more ag­gres­sive. When Dad is shout­ing at other driv­ers, 30 per cent of chil­dren slump down in their seat to hide, and 2 per cent cry. Seven in 10 chil­dren say Mum is more likely to stall the car when tak­ing off; 64 per cent of kids say Mum is in­ca­pable of re­verse park­ing; and 67 per cent say their mums bump into walls, road signs and lamp­posts.
