Donegal drivers the most helpful in the country

Drivers from Donegal are the most likely to pull in and help a stranded motorist, according to a new survey from AA Ireland.

A total of 61% of drivers in Donegal said they would intervene if they saw someone who needed assistance, compared to 40% of drivers in Kildare - who were rated the least likely to be "good Samaritans".

There was also a clear gender divide, with 55% of men saying they would stop to help a female motorist, while just 4% of women drivers said they would stop to help a man - possibly due to safety concerns.

A high number of respondents overall, 57%, were also willing to help out someone stranded with young children in their car. This figure was notably higher among male drivers at 67%.
