UK drivers admit to sex when driving

Friday, October 30, 2015


Almost one-in-seven UK drivers have admitted to engaging in sexual activities whilst driving a car according to a survey on dangerous behaviour on the road.

The survey from vehicle suppliers OSV found that 14% of UK drivers said they had had sexual activities behind the wheel.

The results added that men were more willing to admit to this indiscretion. Sixty percent of those that admitted to participating in a sexual activity were men, whilst only 40% of those that confessed were women.

It also found that around 60% of those that made the admission were between the ages of 30 and 59, 30% were between the age of 18-29, while 10% were over the age of 60.

However, engaged in sexual activities was not the most popular activity choice. The survey found that ‘engaged in sexual activities’ was the second highest admission on the survey, with over 40% of the UK driving population admitted to picking their nose whilst in control of a vehicle.

Other dangerous admissions included: checking social media (10%); taking a selfie (4%); driving naked (2%); and eating with utensils (2%).

Co-Founder of OSV Debbie Kirkley said: “This survey helps lift the lid on what people get up to whilst driving. It is deeply worrying that so many people admit to taking part in these dangerous activities and shows that more needs to be done to help highlight and educate people about the dangers that come with participating in these activities.”
