Left hand down a bit! Parking the car and motorway driving provide the biggest headaches for drivers, a new survey has revealed.

Some 27 per cent of drivers admitted they feared parking while 21 per cent of those asked said they lacked confidence driving on motorways.

More than half of drivers said they were nervous when hemmed in between cars and lorries on motorways, while 43 per cent said they had a dislike of overtaking lorries or other big vehicles.

The survey, carried out by Nissan, also found 39 per cent of drivers felt scared, nervous, uneasy or uncertain behind the wheel in general. Alex Smith, managing director of Nissan, said: “It’s concerning that many drivers feel they lack confidence in the everyday aspects of multi-lane driving.”

Nissan conducted the study to highlight ProPILOT, the car giant’s advanced driver assistance technology.
