Car insurance comparison site records the questionable fashion choices of British motorists

According to a recent survey of 2,000 drivers conducted by the price comparison website,, many Brits admit to getting behind the wheel wearing slippers and high heels, while many revealed they even drive their car in bare feet. The car insurance price comparison website polled 2,000 drivers and found that 25% of those who took part in the research had driven in their pyjamas, while 10% took to the wheel wearing their slippers and 40% of the female drivers questioned said they’d driven their car while wearing high heels. The group most likely to leave their slippers on while getting behind the wheel of their car were found to be men aged between 25-34 years and also female drivers aged between 18-24 years. When it comes to driving with bare feet, 22% of the male drivers who were polled by admitted to this questionable practice, while the number was slightly higher for women drivers with 24% revealing their habit of driving with no shoes. Aside from footwear, other unadvisable habits of drivers picked up by the survey included the penchant of female drivers for applying make-up while driving, 10% admitted to this, while 15% of men have shaved while behind the wheel. When it comes to keeping focused on the road ahead, women came out on top with only 18% revealing that they regularly checked out other drivers to see if they are attractive compared to 47% of male drivers.
