Occupation and traffic behavior - who are the most aggressive drivers?

Doctors take first place for driving aggressively, while hairdressers are calmer drivers, according to a British study that has revealed the links between drivers' professions and their driving habits, "Metro" writes.

The research shows a direct link between occupation and driving habits, revealing which occupations are more prone to speeding, inadequate parking and dangerous traffic behaviour.

According to a survey of 2 Britons, construction workers stood out as the fastest drivers, with more than 70 per cent of respondents admitting to regularly exceeding the speed limit.

On the other hand, medical professionals admit that they often get nervous while driving, with more than a quarter of them using inappropriate gestures and shouting to express frustrations while driving.

It is interesting that hairdressers show special courtesy on the street. Almost all respondents of this profession say that they regularly let others enter in front of them, while human resources employees have the most difficulties with parking.

On the other hand, according to the study, electricians often forget to signal when exiting the roundabout.

The survey also showed that lawyers, media workers and entrepreneurs most often overtake and enter the other lane when they shouldn't, showing a tendency towards risky behaviour.

Despite these behaviors, most drivers believe that they drive well and take care of traffic safety, although a large number of them have admitted that they often feel nervous while driving.

The vast majority believe that driving would be more enjoyable if all drivers were more orderly.
