Study: S’pore drivers ‘frustrated and stressed’
Singapore drivers are a frustrated lot, according to a study by AIG Asia Pacific Insurance (AIG Singapore) released on Wednesday (Jan 20).
About 77 per cent say they are annoyed about driving conditions here, with 53 per cent actually feeling stressed out when out on the roads.
The research found that younger drivers, in particular, engage in risky driving behaviour – 63 per cent of drivers aged 18 to 35 admitted to being unsafe on the roads.
The research also revealed that these drivers, who are predominantly well-educated working professionals, often have young children on board.
Young and single drivers are also more likely to be involved in road accidents.
The company’s claims data shows that drivers making the highest number of auto claims are under 35 and single and that these drivers are often fully or partially to blame for the accidents.
The survey, which was conducted last September, involved 800 Singapore drivers.
