#sponsoredEdmunds.com, the online car shopping site, decided to poll more than 1,000 Moms to find out their driving habits and the role their car plays in their everyday life.
The poll found some really interesting info, including that Moms spend more time driving their children around than they do playing with them. While this may be a surprise to some, it doesn’t mean there can’t be a shift – why not spend those hours in the car connecting and playing with your children? With the summer months coming quickly, Edmunds compiled a list of the top games to play on a road trip and the best cars for each.

The poll also revealed that 66% of Moms consider themselves to be the better driver than their spouse – take that Dads!
Check out the rest of the results from Edmunds.com’s Mother’s Day poll:
- My Wheels, My Rules: Though the kiddos may love that One Direction song, 71% of Moms stated that they are in control of the music while in the car (versus their kids, 18%).
- The "Other" Kid: When asked if they'd choose to pamper themselves or their car, 37% of Moms chose to pamper their car; they truly love their other baby.
- Baby Vision: When it comes to keeping their eyes on the road with a crying baby in the backseat, 39% of Moms have located a pacifier without even looking for it – keeping their eyes on the road AND giving it back to their little one.
- She Ain't No Soccer Mom: 70% of Moms surveyed said they outright refuse to drive "mom mobile."
Happy Mother’s Day!
