Quiz: How well do you know Australian drivers?


When was the last time you got cut off in traffic? Or spotted someone texting while driving? Was it you who did it?

There are a lot of drivers on Australia’s roads, and unfortunately, not everyone obeys the rules all of the time. 15,000 Australian drivers have been surveyed by Lonergan Research on behalf of Suncorp Insurance about bad habits and common mistakes made on the roads.

The participants were asked to reveal their bad habits and confess to when they had made errors because of their poor judgement.

See how well you think you know your fellow motorists and what they get up to behind the wheel.
