While most people will be thinking about giving up chocolate for Lent this year, one insurer has urged used car owners to improve their driving skills.

Research by found that road rage, distraction caused by passengers and snoozing at red lights were among some of the guilty admissions made by the firm's customers, which it claims they should resolve to stop.

The study also showed that 41 per cent of males already believe they are perfect drivers, compared to 35 per cent of women, although it was claimed that there is much room for improvement.

Graeme Kalbraier, managing director of, said: "It's understandable that people will get into bad driving habits over the years, but it's really encouraging to see many of these bad habits cast aside for Lent - or hopefully longer."
