The study, which surveyed 2,000 people across the country, found that females drive their male partners more often than males drive their female partners. With all this girl power at the wheel, it鈥檚 no wonder that female drivers take the majority of the complaints: 57.5 percent of women said their partners sometimes or very often criticize them when they drive.

This criticism is normally rooted in the fact that neither sex takes their partner鈥檚 suggestions when driving. The other top driving-related complaints, the study found, were driving too fast, tailgating other drivers and braking too hard. Many couples studied said that playing music they don鈥檛 like is a top pet peeve too.

While all types of couples expressed distress over their partner鈥檚 driving habits, the most affected couples were the most committed. The study showed that a whopping 37.2 percent of married people described road trips together as 鈥渟tressful,鈥 while only 23.1 percent of their unmarried, non-cohabitating counterparts said the same.

Despite the different habits that annoy your S.O. while on the road, the culmination of pet peeves illuminates the most interesting fact of all: 30.9 percent of women said they have feared for their lives while driving with their partner. Buckle up, ladies!
