Not Asking For Directions Costs $$$

On Labor Day weekend, 91 percent of travelers will reach their destination by car. Some of those drivers will inevitably get lost and a new study suggests lost drive time costs men $3,000 or more in gas over their lifetime.”That does not surprise me, a girl will stop and ask for directions. A guy has too much pride,” says Spokane driver Evette Pitchlynn. The newly released study sheds light on male and female driving habits. British insurance company, Seila’s Wheels, claims that one in 10 male drivers refuses to ask a stranger for help. More than a quarter of men polled say they would wait at least half an hour before asking for directions/Tania Dall, KXLY. More here.
