London Drivers are the Worst
- Survey blames driver-stress for poor road record

STRESSFUL and lengthy journeys make London drivers the worst in the country, according to a new survey from car insurance company Privilege.

"Factors such as the time drivers take in completing a journey, where they live and the volume of motorists on the road, all have a direct affect on how safely they drive," said Ian Parker, director of Privilege.

Such stress-inducing conditions encourage bad road behaviour, including undertaking and breaking red lights, two areas in which London leads the rest of Britain.

London's men are even worse than London's women, according the the survey of 1,500 motorists, while women in Scotland are the best mannered of all. No link at all, but Privilege Insurance was launched by the Royal Bank of Scotland.
