A new national survey has found that UK drivers take part in some strange (and highly dangerous) activities whilst driving.

According to the OSV Ltd survey, almost one in seven UK drivers have admitted to engaging in sexual activities whilst driving a car. Fourteen per cent of UK drivers gave this response when asked if they have ever engaged in sexual activities whilst behind the wheel.

The results found that men were more willing to admit to this indiscretion. Sixty per cent of those that admitted to participating in a sexual activity were men, whilst only forty per cent of those that confessed were women.

Unpredictably, younger drivers were not the key culprits of this activity. In fact, around sixty per cent of those that made the admission were between the ages of 30 and 59. Thirty per cent were between the age of 18-29 and only ten per cent of those owning up 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 ‘picking your nose’ coming out on top. Over 40% of the UK driving population admitted to picking their nose whilst in control of a vehicle.

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

Co-Founder of OSV Ltd, 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.”

“Engaging in sexual activities should be the last thing that people do whilst behind the wheel,” she added.

The survey questioned 500 respondents throughout the UK.
