British drivers love their music

British drivers love their music

British drivers love to listen to music while driving, at least that’s the findings from a recent survey by car insurance price comparison website,, which found that over half of the 2000 motorists it questioned wouldn’t be able to cope without music on a car journey. A third of drivers admitted that they would quickly have a stereo installed if they found themselves driving a car with no sound system, while over half, 54% said they couldn’t cope without listening to music while driving. As well as making us happier behind the wheel, 1 in 5 male drivers also admitted that listening to music made them drive faster, compared to 16% of drivers overall, which could be something of a concern if it leads to speed limits being broken. When it comes to the type of music British drivers like to listen to while behind the wheel, one band came out on top. Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now, and Bohemian Rhapsody came in first and second place, with Meatloaf’s Bat Out of Hell coming in third place, followed by Shut Up and Drive by Rihanna and Dakota by Stereophonics. Motoring experts believe that listening to music while driving is something of a modern phenomenon with such a high percentage of people feeling unhappy at the prospect of driving without the accompaniment of music.
