Vanity obsessed male motorists cause over 2.2m car crashes every year

London, Mar. 27 : Appearance-obsessed male motorists, who keep fawning over their reflection in the rear view mirror and groom themselves while driving are responsible for millions of car crashes, a new research has revealed.

According to the research, they have caused an estimated 2.2 million accidents on the roads in the last 12 months alone.

The research conducted by MORE TH>N Car Insurance shows that on an average a vanity-related crash results in 653.20-pound damage to a car.

Whether it's styling their hair, inspecting their complexion, pouting and posing or checking the brightness of their pearly whites, a car's mirror is perfectly positioned to let metrosexual men gaze at their own face while in the car, the Daily Express reported.

An estimated 1.3 million motorsexual men regularly apply facial moisturiser, fake tan, and male foundation when in control of a moving vehicle.

Many male drivers seem to be so preoccupied with their own appearance that a whopping 2.9 million linger on their reflections between five and ten times in the space of a single 30 minute car journey.

With roughly 4.8 seconds taken up each time they check themselves out, meaning millions of male motorists could be spending up to 48 seconds with their eyes fixed on themselves instead of the road.
