Are we there yet Aus kids most restless travellers

first_imgAustralian children become disinterested and bored after just 23 minutes of driving, according to new research commissioned by in-car product supplier TomTom. With the impending summer holidays just around the corner, families will be taking to the roads for long-haul car journeys. Of the nine countries surveyed, research revealed that Australian children had the least patience. The average time taken to lose interest amongst all respondents was 27 minutes. Methods used by mothers to avoid boredom included making up games (74 percent), offering treats and rewards (52 percent) and even lying about the time left to travel (24 percent).“Whilst we can’t stop children getting bored, we can make sure family journeys are as short as possible by getting you to your destination faster,” TomTom managing director Corinne Vigreux said. The survey was conducted by research company Ipsos MORI, targeting mothers in the United Kingdom, US, Australia, Germany, Netherlands, France, Italy and Spain.
