Stupid headline of the week comes courtesy of The Mirror. They say women putting their make up on in the car are responsible for an estimated 450,000 road accidents a year. Of course it’s us! There’s just no way it could be anything to do with guys lighting their ciggies, talking on mobile phones, adjusting radio to surround-sound, arguing at hot football debate on said radio, reading the paper while they’re driving, wolf whistling unsuspecting pedestrians who have dared to stray into the realms of a high heel, or sticking two fingers (and thus leaving the ten to three position) up at anything they consider to be less than perfect driving. No, it really couldn’t be anything to do with that.

Are you sure it wasn’t in The Mail?
My personal favourite are the van drivers I often see early in the morning driving while drinking mugs of tea.
My husband once started flossing in a traffic jam; the traffic started moving; the floss got stuck and he stalled the car. (search me how he actually had floss in the car). I can’t actually drive, but I am an expert at back-of-a-black-cab makeovers.
Ahhh gotta love the “news”
what can you say ?
While I share your frustrations with the ‘news’ I have to say I was almost knocked over at some traffic lights (they were red) by a woman who was applying lipstick while looking in her rear view mirror.
But then again, I was almost hit by a white van on a zebra crossing once because the male driver was arguing with his passengers/co-workers.
