British Study: Male Drivers Who Won’t Stop to Ask for Directions

According to British Insurance firm Sheilas’ Wheels, the average British male travels 276 miles per year because he is too stubborn to stop to ask for directions!

That’s right fellas. This means you’re spending £2,000 ($3,100) worth on just gas simply because you don’t want to be the one in question.

Not sure what that correlates to here in the United States, but in the UK alone, 25% of men would rather wander for up to 30 minutes before stopping to ask someone for directions. And, 10% would never bother to ask at all. Best yet – 41% of men admitted to telling their passengers that they knew where they were going when truly they didn’t!

Now, women are a different story. When polled, 75% of British women admit to having no hesitation when it comes time to asking for help.  We wonder what this poll would look like if conducted within the U.S….  Does the trend hold true to Corvette owners?  (Especially those without navigation built in!)
