Ogling on the road is wheely bad idea
RANDY drivers cause nearly one MILLION crashes in Britain each year – because they are ogling members of the opposite sex.
A study of more than 2,000 motorists by insurance firm Direct Line found distracted drivers cause an average of 2,525 crashes EVERY DAY – the equivalent of 921,840 per year.
Researchers say 60 per cent of men admitted being distracted by attractive women, while 12 per cent of females took their eyes off the road to leer at hunky fellas.
And 21 per cent of drivers also revealed that advertising billboards featuring pictures of sexy models were also a major distraction on the road.
Between 2008 and 2009, 921,840 drivers across Britain admitted crashing because they were distracted by the opposite sex.
Martyn Beard, 32, from Tipton, West Mids, wrote off his Ford Fiesta last July when he ogled a girl outside a pub.
He said: “I couldn’t take my eyes off her. She had the classic long legs and lovely figure.
“My concentration drifted and suddenly I realised I was about to crash into the car in front.”
