Bugs Cause 650,000 Accidents

UK insurance firm Esure, have found that insects are to blame for $88 million in auto damage a year. "It's worrying that over three quarters of the driving population are so easily distracted by bugs when they're behind the wheel. Motorists are panicking and are not only losing their concentration but also control of their cars - putting themselves and other road users at risk," says Esure's Mike Pickard. Should a menacing insect confront you, the company advises you to "Try not to panic and swat the insect or wave your hands around to force the insect away. As well as making you feel more frantic, this will irritate the insect and increase the likelihood of a sting or bite." [Via Automotoportal]
