About 15 percent of drivers admitted they’re bad at one basic driving skill Spencer Platt/Getty Images

Most people make resolutions for the upcoming new year, and they can range from getting in better shape to eating healthier.

Drivers in the United Kingdom answered what issues they want to address for next year, and about a quarter of the responses involved people wanting to check tire pressure and oil levels more often.

According to Car Scoops, the research was done by Young Driver — which is the country’s largest pre-17 driving school. About 17 percent of drivers said they want to improve at parallel parking.

Surprisingly, 15 percent of drivers admitted they are bad at reversing. We wouldn’t have guessed so many people would admit they needed to fix that above all else, but it’s a necessary skill to have.

Here are the rest of the results, which included 16 percent of people wanting to conquer their fear of driving on highways.

Other responses included not getting road rage (14 percent), not being on the phone while driving (13 percent) and to speed less (11 percent).

Being on the phone while driving might be the habit most difficult for most people to kick, but it’s among the most dangerous things you can do while driving.

What’s on your driving resolution for 2018? Let us know!
