Accidents happen more often because of the makeup

October 2 2009

Researchers from the United Kingdom concluded that the greatest number of accidents that occur on roads, occur through the fault of women, who while driving decide to do makeup.

Girls, looking in the rearview mirror with one hand while holding the mascara or lipstick, and the other wheel is to blame in nearly half a million accidents that take place each year. Every fifth female driver admitted that she once did makeup while driving, attempting to maneuver.

Three percent of respondents admitted that they become the cause of the collision on the highway. Thus, the percentage equivalent of about 450.000 accidents per year.

At the same time, careless driving, in particular, applying makeup while driving, eating and reading a map - are punishable only by fine. Women age 17-21 years were considered the most dangerous road users as well as beauty for them is more important than security.

More than a quarter (27%) admitted that, applying makeup, got into an accident. However, their 18 years of age and younger, which is three times the number of middle-aged women. For comparison: only 6 percent of women aged 56 years and older - were the cause of accidents, reports DailyMail

Director of an insurance company, Diamond Sian Lewis commented on the situation this way: "We're very busy lives, but this does not mean that the road can be distracted. Is ink is more important than the safety of other road users. Even if you're lucky enough, quietly reach your destination, it does not mean that you will not fined a policeman, if noticed. It is clear that women prefer to deal with at once, a few things, but on the road it's better not to practice. "

Society for the Prevention of Accidents UK calls to consider this matter as soon as possible to avoid further potentially fatal collision on the road.
