The car brand most likely to be left stuck waiting at a junction has been identified as BMW in a study by leasing firm OSV Ltd.
The results revealed over one in four drivers admitted that they would not let out a BMW at a junction and somewhat surprisingly women were less likely to let out a BMW than males, with over 30% refusing to give way to motorists driving that brand.
Males picked out Subaru’s - the car made famous by the World Rally Championships - as the car they would be most unlikely to let out.

Other car brands that are not likely to be let out at junctions include Land Rover, Subaru, Mercedes and Audi.
Almost one in five motorists would not let out a Land Rover, one in six would not let out a Subaru, one in eight would not let out a Mercedes and one in 12 would not let out an Audi.
“Any four by four’ was also pinpointed as a car not likely to be let out. Almost one in five drivers identified a four by four as a car type they would be unlikely to allow to join queuing traffic.
The poll also found that it wasn’t just the brand that would impact whether motorists would let them out. Over three quarters of drivers also admitted that they would not let drivers out if they saw them using their mobile phones.
Nearly half (49.7%) would not let out a driver that was eating, 33.8% would not let out a ‘souped-up’ car, 23.3% would not let out a car that was driving under the speed limit, 18.3% would not let out a bus, 13.8% would not let out a car that had a bumper sticker, 8.4% would not let out a learner driver and 5.8% would not let out a car that was dirty.
Co-founder of OSV LTD, Debbie Kirkley, said: “Waiting to be let out can be an incredibly stressful time for many motorists.
“On commutes to work or the school run, many motorists will rely on the generosity of a fellow driver to let them out.
“This survey has shown that if you drive a BMW, you will be waiting around a lot longer than if you drive a Ford.”
