Italians named worst drivers in poll

It's official... well almost! The Italians are the worst drivers in the world. So beware if you are hiring a car or indeed taking the family on a trip across Europe which involves crossing Italian borders.

In a survey into the quality of drivers worldwide, over 10,000 visitors from 10 European countries took part in the poll.

The results revealed that 18 per cent of the voters judged the Italians to be the worst drivers. The Turkish, Indians and Chinese were also called 'reckless drivers' more than once.

Fellow countrymen/women were judged too. Over 15 per cent of the Dutch think the drivers from their own country often make a complete mess in traffic. Tailgating and unnecessarily driving on the overtaking lane are two of the biggest irritations.

The survey was carried out by www.Zoover.co.uk an independent holiday website with reviews about holiday destinations and accommodation.
