Nearly two million drivers have had accidents due to ‘Baby On Board’ signs and children’s toys that obscure their view, according to alarming new research.

A OnePoll survey commissioned by price comparison website Confused.com found that 37 per cent of parents have displayed signs and four out of five of them believe they improve safety.

But 46 per cent admit doing so at all times - regardless of whether or not their child is in the car - and 15 per cent confess they only have them for their novelty value.

Never having the need for a Baby On Board sign, I can't give first hand experience.....

But I don't have any other sign, decal, Obama 2008 or Obama 2012 sticker on my car.....

Those Obama 2008 stickers are definitely a disaster.
