Around 90% of female drivers believe men have irritating driving habits, according to a new study.

Research by women's car insurance provider Diamond found that the majority of chicks thought male driving habits were irritating, with half also believing themselves to have annoying motoring tendencies.

A third of the ladies polled said that the most annoying habit of male drivers was speeding, with 30% saying temper loss was the second most common bad male driving habit

In comparison, most male drivers who believed women had bad motoring tendencies said their most common complaint was not being courteous to other drivers.

Despite the findings, the majority of female drivers recently told women's car insurance firm Sheila's Wheels that they thought the car was the perfect place to have meaningful chats with their partner.
