A survey done by an insurance company in the UK that specializes in auto insurance for women found while half of women drivers believe they don't have any irritating driving habits, 90% of them don't share that feeling when it comes to male drivers.

Women's car insurance specialist Diamond surveyed both male and female motorists to find out what irritates them most. Here are some of the findings: 31% of women think the most irritating driving habit men have is speeding and 30% think it's losing their temper. However, 29% of men think the most irritating driving habit women have is lacking courtesy to others. When it comes to passengers, male passengers irritate two thirds of women. Of those, 35% of women are driven mad by men who criticize their driving and 17% can't stand it when their male passenger tries to given them directions when they already know where they're going. Less than half of men questioned found female passengers irritating, but having their driving criticized was also what annoyed them most.
