Male drivers driven to distraction by landmarks and in-car radios
Research by Saga Car Insurance shows two thirds of men over 50 admit to having been distracted behind the wheel in the last 12 months, compared to half of women.
The most common things that distract drivers are looking at views or landmarks (30 per cent), changing radio stations or CDs (21 per cent) and using Sat Navs (20 per cent), with men significantly more likely to be distracted than women.
As well as being twice as likely to be distracted by programming Sat Navs (men 23 per cent, women 13 per cent), and rubber necking (men 15 per cent, women nine per cent), men are also more likely to channel hop for a good tune (men 24 per cent, women 18 per cent).
However, men's love of technology isn't their only downfall when it comes to driving, as a quarter of men admit to ogling attractive passers-by, while only one per cent of women say their eyes have momentarily wandered off the road and on to a hottie.

While being distracted at the wheel can be an inconvenience, with two fifths of drivers missing turnings, being distracted can also be dangerous.
A fifth of distracted drivers have nearly had an accident, one in ten have been so preoccupied with other things that they have mounted a curb and the same number of people have run a red light.
