Brits Spend 5.67 Million Hours Each Year Looking for Their Car

We’ve all been there - you come out of a shop and wonder where on Earth you parked your car! Well, you’re not alone…

A recent survey revealed that 52% of motorists have previously been unable to find their parked car temporarily, ‘losing’ it at least once each year! 25% of drivers admitted to doing so twice in the last 12 months, with 14% saying they misplaced their vehicle three or more times.

On average, females turned out to be most forgetful, with 16% losing their car more than three times, while just 12% of male drivers did. Drivers aged 18-25 admitted to losing their car on average 2.5 times a year! Whilst motorists over the age of 66 just 0.82 times a year.

The most common places for misplacing a car were shopping centre car parks (58%), supermarkets (36%), airports (21%) and events/festivals (12%).
