White van men are better than you

Published: 27 September 2010

White van men outperform bikers in almost every way, a survey has claimed.

The survey of motorists, run by a UK insurance company, concluded that van drivers are the most well-read, physically fit and politically alert road users; as well as being the handiest around the house and the most likely to be self-employed.

The majority of bikers said they “hated politics” and “never read”.

On the plus side, bikers know wine better than anyone else on the road. 10% of motorcyclists described themselves as ‘practically a wine expert’, but were outperformed in every other category by van drivers.

With no mention of knee-down cornering or balance-point wheelies, MCN reckon the survey was seriously flawed.
