Obvious: What we drive reflects on us

C’mon, admit it, you’ve all done it at least once. Apparently one in five British drivers admit to checking themselves out in shop windows as they drive by, according to a study conducted by Peugeot in Britain. Further, it seems one in four British motorists (26%) dream of being seen in a car that makes other people jealous.

Some of the statistics are down-right shocking. Do a third of British men really need their car to be admired by passers-by? According to the results, they do. People today truly believe that what they drive has a big impact on how they are perceived, 19% even admit that it seriously boosts their confidence to be seen in a stylish vehicle.

The results get even stranger. 1 out of every 20 of the respondents surveyed admitted to taking a different route to avoid being noticed, that equates to roughly 5% of British motorists or about 1.2 million cars going out of their way to avoid embarrassment.

Ahh.. the things we do.
