Currently, motorized vehicles are equipped with various technologies, one of which is a key system. In addition to security reasons, the feature also helps owners to find their car in the parking area.
However, with car technology now growing rapidly, a study conducted by Nissan GB revealed that British drivers spend 35 million hours a year searching for their cars in the parking area.
Launching Autoevolution on Liputan6.com on Wednesday (12/26/2018), OnePoll survey conducted on 2,000 drivers. As a result, one third of the respondents said they had difficulty finding their cars in the parking area. On average, one month occurs one incident, and 1 in 20 drivers experience each week.
Still based on the survey, female drivers are more susceptible to this problem, with a ratio of 72 percent to women and 28 percent to men. But on the other hand, female drivers need less time than men to find their vehicles, with a ratio of 8.8 minutes for women and 11.9 minutes for men.
So far, the place where most drivers lose their vehicles, is multi-storey parking, shopping centers, supermarket parking lots, airports, city walks and concert venues.
Meanwhile, every year, there are more than 133 million examples of drivers who lose or have difficulty finding their cars in the parking area.
Arun Prasad, a spokesman for Nissan GB, also explained that this research highlights drivers who often forget the location of their car parking. However, this can be overcome by the use of technology in modern cars.
