Road Trip: Survey Discovers a Driver Paradox

September 16, 2015 2:07 am

Something’s not adding up. According to a recent survey commissioned by eDriving, nearly twice as many people (85 percent) think they’re “very good” drivers than think the same of their spouse or significant other – in fact, only 33 percent of people grade their spouse or significant other as a “very good” driver.

Hardly anyone admits to being a bad driver – just 2 percent of people classified themselves as “not very good.” These self-evaluations just don’t match the verdicts of the observers who see the most and know the best, says Celia Stokes, CEO of eDriving.

"The discrepancies here point out an interesting and important truth: most drivers are over-confident, and the people who drive with them the most are probably very aware of their bad habits behind the wheel," says Stokes. “All of us who drive know that the drivers around us have more than their share of driving vices, but we may be blind to our own!"
