First born children are more likely to be worse drivers

If you're the youngest in the family - prepare to feel very smug.

According to The Evening Standard, a new survey has found that the eldest of the family are the worst when it comes to the rules of the road.

A psychologist reckons it's down to their upbringing and how they reach certain milestones before their siblings.

In comparison, the younger siblings have to work hard and put in more effort to keep up with the standards set by their older brothers and sisters. So much so, that it's the youngest siblings who are the best drivers of all the family.

See, we told you to feel smug.

The middle and youngest don't come without flaws, though, with the middle child forgetting to indicate and the youngest eating behind the wheel.

This is sure to start a family argument in some houses.
