Motorists fail as map readers; TRANSPORT.
And more than four in five fail to recognise that blue-coloured roads on maps signify motorways, the poll from esure car insurance found.
Based on responses from 1,000 UK drivers, the research also revealed that 16 per cent no longer keep a map in their car.
More than three in five have out-of-date maps, with about the same number saying they could not live without their sat-nav system.
The survey also showed only one per cent of those polled would qualify for a Cub Scout map-reader badge.
