The Herald reports:
Are sexy pedestrians just too distracting? Or are your kids driving you mad at the wheel?
You’re not alone. They are among the top distractions found in a UK survey of 1500 drivers by IAM and Vision Critical.
Children (29 per cent), changing the stereo (27 per cent), back-seat drivers (26 per cent), the satnav (15 per cent) and attractive pedestrians, drivers or passengers (14 per cent) were rated the things which most took attention away from the road.
The Government banned the use of non hands-free cellphones in cars because they were deemed a distraction. Logically they should also ban sexy pedestrians from sidewalks in case they too cause car crashes.
This might seem unfair to sexy pedestrians, but just as one can still use a cellphone if it is hands-free, they would still be allowed out in public so long as they are covered up.Tags: road safety
