‘Driving While Listening to Football is Dangerous’
Driving while listening to football (particularly penalty shoot outs!) is as dangerous as using a mobile phone a new survey reports. According to the poll conducted by online insurance broker motorinsurance.co.uk UK roads must have been dangerous places to be throughout the game against Portugal on Saturday.
Listening to ‘the game’ on the car radio, say 60 per cent of drivers questioned, could be just as distracting as making a mobile phone call in the car. However, if you are an avid sports radio listener fear not. This survey aside there is not any empirical data to suggest that the level of distraction caused by listening to the radio is anywhere near as high as using a mobile.
