Nearly half of motorists would consider changing their job to avoid congestion.

The survey, carried out by Goodyear Tyres UK, also found that a similar number (40%) would possibly give up their city life if they could avoid congestion by using a driverless vehicle.

According to the analysis, almost one in 10 (9%) motorists claim congestion has caused them to be the most stressed they have ever been in their life. Nearly two-thirds (58%) have arrived late to work, 37% claim they have sworn, 15% admit to making rude hand gestures and 4% admit that traffic has made them cry.
