Drivers in Northern Ireland 'drive more than anyone else'

New research shows that motorists in Northern Ireland - more specifically those in County Londonderry - drive more than any others in the UK, covering around 11,133 miles every year.

The figures by Warranty Direct went on to reveal that counties in rural Northern Ireland in fact held three of the top five slots for which UK county drivers undertook the longest annual distances behind the wheel.

Counties in Scotland occupied four out of the top ten, with motorists in East Lothian coming in behind those from County Londonderry, racking up an annual mileage of 10,678.

Those in London and on the Isle of Wight seemed to use their cars the least, clocking up just 8,556 and 6,928 miles respectively.

Managing director at Warranty Direct Duncan McClure Fisher explained the results, saying: "Drivers based in remote, rural areas with limited public transport networks are, understandably, more dependent on a car for day-to-day travel and are often forced to travel further for the daily commute."ADNFCR-2576-ID-801565348-ADNFCR
