Survey says 650,000 accidents were caused by insects – rpmGo.com

A recent survey conducted be the Esure car insurance company revealed that about 650,000 accidents that took place in 2006 were caused by drivers being distracted by bugs and insects.

Three quarters (75 per cent) of drivers revealed that rogue bugs drove them to distraction, so much so that over a million (four per cent) motorists admitted to slamming on the brakes when an insect flew into their car. Worryingly, an additional fifth of motorists (21 per cent) said they took their hands off the wheel to either swat or flick out an unwanted bug.
