BMW owners have been named as the worst drivers in Britain in a poll of more than 5,000 motorists.
The survey showed that the image of the BMW driver has not changed since they came to symbolise the brash winners of the boom-bust economy of the 1980s.
"They seem to be unable to use signals, expecting others on the road to have psychic powers," said Ian Vince, co-author of The Myway Code, who organised the survey.
"We were really surprised that BMW drivers got so many votes. We expected Chelsea Tractors and 'White Van Man' to come in higher.
"The BMW is a smug car and perhaps there is some envy towards the drivers from those of us in our Fiestas."
