Two in three people argue in the car, with 18-24 year olds more likely to row than over 65s, the AA/Populus survey revealed.

Driving too fast was next on the list of grievances followed by not asking for directions and noisy children.

The survey, of 23,000 AA members, also found that motorists argued about shouting at other drivers, the temperature in the vehicle, not agreeing where to eat, what music to listen to, the topic of conversation and finally driving too slowly.
