Privilege Car Insurance did a study on the driving habits of 1,395 motorists. The study reveals that 89% of the older siblings are likely to speed, 35% to get fined, 47% are likely to cut off other drivers.

46% of them will be driving in the middle of road. That there is the most annoying part.

17% of the elder children in UK admit to putting make-up while driving, while a 30% use their phones which is a crime. Due to which a 22% are found in minor accidents and 15% in major accidents.

But your parents will still love them the most. Ugh.
