So, coming up a busy road the other day (A50) and going round a roundabout in the correct lane, a car suddenly pulled onto the roundabout and proceeded to go right round the roundabout on the inside lane.  Imagine my reaction when I spotted this car had Spanish plates!  Seems they come to UK and drive like that as well.

However, it's not just the Spanish (note how I got the title into the main body, there?) as these drivers confessed to the Readers Digest on what they have done whilst driving:

1.  Watched a DVD while driving an HGV

2.  Played a computer game on my laptop

3.  Approached a junction at 80 mph whilst retrieving a SatNav from the floor

4.  Swerved trying to find a toy on the floor in the back for a screaming baby

5.  Shaken hands with a passenger in another car at 60 mph on hte motorway

6.  Had sex (apparently admitted by over a dozen drivers)

7.  Driven the wrong way on a motorway while drunk

8.  Had both feet out of the window with the car on cruise control at 120 mph

9.  Read a newspapr - spread across the steering wheel - while driving a petrol tanker on the motorway

10.  Put on make-up while making a phone call with a child standing on the front seat

11.  Used a mobile phone and an electric shave on the motorway

12.  Driven with two dogs sitting on their lap

13.  Eaten a bowl of cereal while on the phone

14.  Stopped suddenly in the middle of the motorway to read something.


47% of 18 to 25 year olds owned up to talking on a hand-held mobile

45% of 18 to 25 year olds owned up to sending text messages

19% of 18 to 25 year olds owned up to kissing or cuddling whilst driving

13% of 18 to 25 year olds owned up to putting on make-up or combing their hair

I'm sure I've driven behind some of those.
