Default Male drivers waste 6 million hours annually

According to a survey by Royal Automobile Club Direct Insurance, British male drivers waste almost 6 million hours annually becasue they are reluctant to ask for directions once they are lost.

For me the more weird things were :

Quote:
Only 27 percent of couples plan their journeys before setting off.
Quote:
Just 36 percent of couples rely on landmarks and road signs to find their destination
Quote:
Martin said new technology installed in cars, including satellite navigation systems, were now being used by about one in five drivers.
Wonder why people critise car makers for being reluctant to make sat nav avaliable in base and cheaper models, when car buyers themselves barely use it.
