Study: Drivers Of Expensive Cars Tend To Be Jerks


Own an expensive car?

Well, you're probably a jerk - at least according to "science"!

Researchers at UNLV had pedestrians cross the road and track which types of cars were more likely to slow down and allow them to cross. Turns out, drivers of more expensive cars were less likely to slow down than others.

There's even a formula! Scientists say a driver is 3% less likely to slow down for every $1000 their car is worth. They theorize that driving an expensive vehicle gives the motorist "a sense of superiority over other road users".
