According to a recent survey, almost a third of motorist asked said their most precious car memory was when parents bring their new baby home from the hospital. The survey, commissioned by a major car manufacturer, asked more than 1000 motorists what their favourite car journeys’ were.
 
Not surprisingly the second most favoured trip was taking the pregnant mother to the hospital to have the baby and in third place were trips involving family holidays. After this were special trips like the first school run, taking the kids to competitions and even scary bad weather drives.
 
However, the little tykes are not in favour for long as it is revealed that around 7 out of 10 mums are distracted at the wheel when they have the kids in the car. Problems such as squabbling siblings and screaming offspring were mentioned.
 
Of those asked more than 4 out of 10 had admitted that the distraction had caused them to have a near miss or an accident on the school run. Around two thirds confessed that they were worried about being late for work and one in five said that they had had to return home to collect something a child had forgotten.
 
So make sure you have up to date car insurance just in case the kids drive you to distraction.
