Among the women drivers polled for the survey, 34 percent pointed the finger as their husbands when it comes to the worst backseat driver. Mothers came in second at 18 percent, with friends listed as third at 15 percent.
Men were even quicker to list a spouse, wives listed by 40 percent, with friends taking place at 17 percent and mothers ranking third at 15 percent.
While children might be the source of that familiar refrain, "Are we there yet?" they ranked surprisingly low in terms of being backseat drivers, according to Insurance.com.
Combining the results of both men and women motorists, adult daughters were listed by just 7 percent while:
- A child son was listed by 5 percent;
- An adult son by 4 percent;
- And daughters, whether teen or child was named by 3 percent, as were teen sons.
Perhaps surprisingly, fathers were rated worst passengers by only 5 percents of those polled.
