Inappropriate footwear is also to blame for some crashes, a survey by insurance company More Than reveals.

The poll found that empty drinks containers, including coffee cups and bottles, were the main in-car items that cause accidents or near-misses.

Those surveyed reported that the containers rolled underneath their pedals and led to a smash or a near-smash.

Dogs clambering on to drivers' laps to seek attention was another in-car hazard, as was inappropriate footwear such as high heels.

Scrapes or near-misses from such incidents were most rife in London, followed by the West Midlands and Wales.
