Man’s best friend is an in-car killer

Dogs and coffee cups are among causes of accidents to car drivers, according to a poll.

Inappropriate footwear is also to blame for some crashes, a survey by insurance company More Than found.

The poll found that empty drinks containers, including 
coffee cups and bottles, were the main in-car items that cause 
accidents or near-misses.

Those surveyed reported that the containers rolled underneath their pedals and led to a smash or a near-smash.

Dogs clambering on to drivers’ laps to seek attention was another in-car hazard, as was inappropriate footwear such as high heels.

More Than managing director Janet Connor said: “The potential dangers and distractions outside the car are well known but, those within the car are often forgotten.”
