Study finds U.K. drivers cursing pretty frequently

Attached Image A recent study commissioned by Hyundai found that drivers in United Kingdom can be cursing a little too much...

The findings came from a pool of 2,000 drivers and according to the article from Carscoops, these drivers swear around 41 times for every 160km driven, while also letting out a curse word or phrase once every two and a half miles. Based on an average 600km traveled to and from work a month, that would work out to them cursing 152 times on average.

90% of the adults freely admitted to cursing while behind the wheel, while 61% of them who are parents said that they tend to keep their language in check when there there are children on board.

The study is part of a Clean Driving Month Hyundai U.K. is championing. It hopes to get drivers to have the right mindset in keeping their attitude and language clean while improving their driving style.

The article also posted what the top 30 things that are most likely to make motorists lose their temper verbally:

1. Someone cutting you up
2. When someone nearly changes lanes into you
3. When you see someone texting and driving
4. When someone doesn’t use their indicator
