Traffic is expected to become very difficult on the return route after the Ascension weekend. Motorists will need patience. However, it is not certain that our drivers will be able maintain their calm during untimely or prolonged stops. If the Vinci Autoroutes Foundation's latest survey of responsible driving shows that the Ile-de-France residents are still the best at driving, then the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes-Cote d'Azur residents are among the worst.
Aura drivers topped the charts in the "Swearing At Another Driver" category. 71% of them admitted to swearing at another motorist, compared to 65% nationally. They are ahead of those of Occitanie (69%) and Provence-Alpes-Cote-d'Azur (68%) on the podium.
Incivility on the roads is a problem that Provence-Alpes -Cote d'Azur motorists are responsible for. They are also second most likely to forget to turn their turn signal to change direction (62% vs. 57% nationally), and second to drive in the middle of the lane when it is free (54% vs. 47%).
Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, on the other hand is the third region in France where drivers are less likely to slow down near work zones (60% versus 57% nationally).
Our drivers are also less attentive on the roads, according to the barometer. While 84% of motorists in France admit that they sometimes take their eyes off the road for more than 2 seconds, this score even reaches 86% in Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes.
