Should we make this illegal too???

Could you imagine the uproar???
We're often told how good women are at doing lots of things at once.

But there's one area where their multi-tasking skills apparently let them down - putting on their make-up while driving.

Girls with their eyes on the rearview mirror and one hand clutching the mascara or lipstick are to blame for nearly half a million accidents a year, it was revealed yesterday.

Despite the dangers, a fifth of women drivers confess they have touched up their make-up on the move - not so much a case of Mirror, Signal, Manoeuvre as Mirror, Signal, Mascara.

Three per cent admit to causing a collision when distracted by applying cosmetics. That equates to around 450,000 crashes a year.

I live in a residential neighbourhood with lots of "younger" families. I see women driving along playing with, and even feeding kids in the baby seat in the back seat of the SUV/van at least 2-3 times a week. Let's ban driving alone with infants as well.

After well over a million miles of driving, it's been my experience that the vast majority of accidents are caused by drivers who aren't actually involved in the accident. Most of the accident's I've witnessed were the result of a series of reactions to something happening well ahead of the actual accident.
