27 March 2014 @ 23:57

SPANISH drivers are more likely to lean on their horns, swear at other motorists and 'undertake' on the right than anyone else in Europe, according to a survey by the VINCI Autoroutes Foundation.

The research involved asking drivers from the UK, France, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Sweden and Spain to reply honestly about their habits at the wheel.

Motorists from Spain admitted their three worst vices were 'beeping persistently at drivers who annoy them', in 63 per cent of cases, compared to the European average of 47 per cent; insulting other drivers, in 59 per cent of cases, compared to 56 per cent in Europe, and 'undertaking on the right' on 35 per cent of occasions, whereas the average for Europe is 28 per cent.
