A diva driver flirting!

Diva drivers flirt to keep a clean licence

Flirtatious females admit to using their feminine charm to flirt their way out of a parking ticket.

A YouGov survey has revealed that one in four women drivers would give a bat of their eyelashes or a hint of cleavage as means of avoiding or reducing penalty points.

In a survey of 2,181 drivers Diva, a new sophisticated, comprehensive car insurance provider specifically designed for women found that 34% of 18-24 year olds said they’d give or would consider giving a traffic warden the come on – brandishing young women as the most brazen behind the wheel.

The mature driver has more driving decorum, with 61% of over 45 year olds refusing to even consider flirting if caught flouting the law.

Drivers from Yorkshire displayed the most temptress tendencies – 25% said they’d turn on the charm if faced with potential penalty points, while 7% of Londoners admitted to already having had a go at charming their way out of trouble.

Head of Diva, Kaye Sutcliffe said: “Diva is car insurance designed specifically for women, and we wanted to delve into a diva’s mind and see what makes us girls tick. At Diva we think women are better drivers which is why we have negotiated such excellent rates for women. But I’m not sure guys realise just how shrewd women are when it comes to getting themselves out of trouble. Flirting is just one more device divas deploy to get what they want behind the wheel.”
