PARENTS' DRIVING TERRIFIES BRITISH CHILDREN IN SURVEY

British children are terrified by their parents' driving, a survey says.

Nine out of 10 adults drive badly, the children said. They speed, swear and shout. They don't wear seat belts, "cut up" other drivers, and drink and drive more than they should.But the children rate men as safer drivers than women. A survey of 350 children, ages 10 and 11, by a driving organization showed one in six youngsters felt uneasy driving with women, compared with one in 10 with men.
