BRIGHTON, Mich. - Many believe that the most common fear among human beings is the fear of public speaking, death or spiders, but when it comes to Millennials, you're wrong: Millennials fear other motorists driving dangerously more than anything else! A new survey released by Ford Motor Co. says that Millennials and Generation Z consumers' top driving fears include backing out onto busy streets, maneuvering into tight parking spaces and monitoring blind spots.
For decades, public speaking has held the top fear spot, as well as spiders. However, younger generations are growing up with completely different fears than their parents or grandparents. Today, younger drivers are more worried about distracted drivers. See the list below:
Top fears for Millennials and Generation Z:
- Other motorists driving dangerously (88%)

The most worrisome driving conditions for Millennials and Generation Z survey respondents include snowy or icy roads, maneuvering into a tight parking spot, backing out onto a busy street, monitoring blind spots and not knowing where they are going.
