More than 1 in 5 Brit women apply make-up while driving

Many women have admitted that they use the rear-view mirror to apply make-up while driving, says a new study in the UK.

More than one-in-five women motorists have admitted that they regularly use the rear-view mirror to check their look.

And one in four said they have driven while wearing high-heel shoes.

As many as 2000 drivers were questioned for the poll.

“Multi-tasking is a trait often associated with women but doing it behind the wheel is extremely hazardous” the Daily Express quoted Claire Foster, a spokeswoman for Churchill as saying.

“Women get a lot of bad press for their driving skill.

“However, men can be dangerously distracted too,” she added.
