Russians are Europe’s worst drivers with 25% admitting to having had sex behind the wheel, according to a new survey.
The poll, by KRC Research and Goodyear, also found Russians do not use seatbelts, break speed-limits, drive through red lights, drive drunk and have sex while driving more often than other Europeans.
Some 36% of Russian drivers admit to regularly exceeding speed limits – the highest rate in Europe, the Delovoi Peterburg newspaper reported.
Russians talk on their mobile phones while driving more often than drivers in the other 14 European countries polled. And about 30% of those polled in Russia had driven drunk before.
Russians also do not pay enough attention to their physical condition when they are going to take the wheel. Only 9% of those polled across Europe will drive if they don’t feel well, compared to 23% of Russians.
