London, June 29 (ANI): For British travellers, Italians fare the worst when it comes to driving, according to a survey.

In the poll by TripAdvisor, over 30 percent of the 819 British travellers claimed that contending with the locals' driving style was the biggest challenge of motoring abroad.lmost 35 percent of survey participants were nervous of driving abroad, while 14 percent said that they never brushed up on local driving regulations.

It was also found that 45 percent had misread a map and got lost, 38 percent had argued with their partner while at the wheel, and 11 percent had lost their temper with other drivers while on foreign roads.

Italians were considered the worst drivers in Europe, while French were the second-worst behind the wheels.

At the third spot were Greeks, followed by motorists in Turkey, Spain and Portugal.

Those polled put British drivers as seventh worst.

"Hitting the open road can be one of the most rewarding and cost-effective ways of exploring a new destination, but some travellers find the notion of a relaxing road trip vanishes as soon as they encounter unfamiliar driving laws and styles," the Daily Express quoted TripAdvisor spokesman Luke Fredberg as saying.
