London, July 5 (ANI): Majority of in-car quarrels happen due to disparities about map reading and following directions, revealed a recent survey.

The survey of over 2,200 Britons by car accessories retailer Halfords revealed that more than one in three argues about where they are going and how to get there.

Almost two thirds - 65 percent - say that disagreements arise as a result of their partner's poor navigation, reports the Scotsman.

Eighty per cent of women complained their partners never checked the route before setting off, as compared with 65 per cent of men.

And 85 per cent said that they argued because the driver refused to ask directions.

Nearly 70 per cent of people questioned admit to a quarrel in their cars at least once a month and almost one in five - 18 per cent - said they argued in the car at least once a week.

One in four fears it could distract the driver and cause an accident.

However, for one in three, the pet hate is to sit for the rest of the journey in angry silence next to the person they have just been arguing with. (ANI)
