There are situations that can drive anyone crazy while driving. Have you ever missed the exit because you were not given the correct directions? Did your ex always take away your favorite songs? These are just some of the most irritating actions between pilot and co-pilot. In fact, according to the Shopopop survey, the fact that the co-pilot changes the music we are listening to when our favorite song plays is one of the moments that most bothers drivers, with 69.3% of people indicating that it irritates them. Close to this figure, 61.3% of respondents point out that one of the worst things the co-driver can do is dirty the car when it has just been cleaned.
Of course, there is also a lot to say about the moment of interaction during the journey, and here there is a division of opinion between those who prefer to chat with their co-pilot and those who love silence. While 37.5% find it bothersome that their co-pilot talks more than necessary, for 36.4% listening is not a problem. Likewise, 42% have no problem if their co-pilot falls asleep, while for 38.7% it can be irritating.
