WEALTHIER drivers are more willing to drive around in dirty cars than their poorer but prouder fellow motorists, according to a survey.

Only one in 17 car owners from professional and managerial backgrounds wash their vehicle once a week, compared to one in 12 from lower-income backgrounds.

Three per cent of the 18,080 AA members surveyed admitted to washing their cars just once a year or not at all.
