 Poll Finds Attractive Passers-by Pose Serious Hazard for Drivers

A new poll in the UK has found that a beautiful passer-by is a major distraction for male drivers.

According to a research conducted by AA Insurance, seven out of ten male drivers admit to being distracted by attractive women passer-by.

Also, a survey by the company five years ago had revealed that 66 per cent of men and 10 per cent of women were distracted by a good-looking passer-by.

"We do notice an increase in the number of minor shunts during August," the Scotsman quoted Simon Douglas, the company's director as saying.

The chief insists that a lot of people do not admit to being distracted by beautiful people around them.

He said: "This research suggests distractions are likely to be a factor, although most people are unlikely to admit it on a claim form - especially if they were eyeing up an attractive member of the opposite sex, perhaps showing off their tan."

A pleasant view ranked as the top distraction for both men and women alike with 75 per cent saying a spectacular landscape would draw their attention.

A low-flying aircraft (55 per cent), billboards (52 per cent) and roadside art (30 per cent) were the other main distractions.
