A poll of 2,000 drivers who celebrate Yuletide found the ‘driving home for Christmas feeling’ is among their favourite aspects of taking to the road in December.
However, certain ‘speedbumps’ along the way have been known to hinder their seasonal spirit.
These include backseat drivers, leaving for events on time, and frustration at attempting to successfully follow directions.
Trying to concentrate when driving in poor weather and who gets lumbered with filling up the vehicle with fuel or charging can also prove divisive.
It also emerged 17 per cent have had a disagreement with their partner over who the designated driver will be.
In response, heycar, which commissioned the study, has launched the ‘Pre-Sup’ – a downloadable agreement committing couples to do their fair share of driving during the holidays.
A spokesperson for the online car seller said: “As the song goes, “Tis the season to be jolly”, but disagreements about whose turn it is to drive can take the sheen off even the merriest of occasions.
“That’s why we’ve decided to help Brits agree in advance who the designated driver should be, and fight for their right to party.
“Reneging on your decision to drive to festive engagements is a common occurrence during the festive season and a sure-fire way to end up on Father Christmas’s naughty list.
“No one wants that – so, this is the perfect way to guarantee the feel-good vibes as you’re driving home for Christmas this year.”
