White van men revel in lout tag
Three quarters of the much-maligned ‘white van man’ have admitted they revel in their loutish image and 14% of them even think it helps them pull a woman.
However, some 70% of drivers of white vans say they have never shouted at another motorist before, according to a survey by Tesco Bank.
Nearly half are self-employed and many of these are women - with florists making up 15% of female white van drivers.
Julie Hopes from Tesco Bank said: “While white remains the colour of choice for commercial vans our research has dispelled the outdated stereotype.”
