More than one in three drivers suffer from stress and muscular aches and pains after stints behind the wheel. Women are more likely to suffer stress than men and drivers between 35 and 44 get most anxious when motoring than other age groups, a survey has found.

But nearly half of drivers do not bother to adjust their seat, check their posture or even check their mirrors before moving off, the research, by motor insurance company Direct Line, found.

And nearly three in five drivers do not even bother to make sure they have enough petrol before starting out.
