SEAT has identified the top five motoring myths believed by UK drivers. According to a survey that asked 2,000 UK motorists whether certain statements about driving were true, the top five myths are as follows:

  1. You are not allowed to drive barefoot – 52%
    2. You are not allowed to drive in flip flops or Wellington boots – 49%
  2. The only time you can enter an active bus lane is to let an emergency vehicle pass – 47%
  3. Children under the age of 12 must sit in the backseat – 38%
  4. It is illegal to drive at night with the interior light on – 37% 

With motoring misconceptions in mind, SEAT asked UK drivers when they last read the Highway Code and discovered that the majority (51%) had failed to read it in the last five years or had never read it at all.
