Car fights start after 22 minutes; never drive longer than that

It takes about 22 minutes until people lose their cool in the car.

A new study conducted by S.E.A.T., a Spanish automobile maker, interviewed 3,000 drivers about their fighting habits.

The most common causes for fights are getting lost, finding a parking spot and driving too fast.

The strangest finding, though, is that during a fight 20 percent of drivers will pull over to the side of the road and refuse to drive until their passenger gets out of the car.

That means 600 people questioned in the survey have left their passengers on the side of the road. Six hundred poor, abandoned passengers. That's just cold.

Check out more results here.
