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.

One in 20 motorists says stickers and playtime paraphernalia are to blame for a collision - equivalent to 1.85 million of Britain’s 37 million drivers.

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.

The poll of 2,000 drivers also found that and 46 per cent of drivers regard them as a hazard and 33 per cent say they are tacky.

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.

Those signs have proven to lead to train wrecks moreso than car accidents.

_______________________________

Those signs are a perfect reflection of some of the idiocy of the "touchy-feely" (overly)protect-kids-at-all-ridiculous-cost generation.

What's the message suppose to suggest? I'm a careful driver no matter who is in the vehicles around me.

Any when I'm walking through a parking lot at the mall in the middle of summer or winter, and see one of those stupid "Baby on Board" signs hanging on a window of a parked car, I'm I suppose to call the police and alert them that there's a baby left alone in a parked car?

If the car owner doesn't ever remove the sign, how are we suppose to know when there really is a baby on board? Goes along with helmets for Big-Wheels.

Everybody is precious, not just babies..... JMHO

One sign I'd like to put on my car is "Get off the dang phone and DRIVE"

My theory is that all those kids growing up in over protective weener parental households end up going one of two ways:

- outright rebellion on there way to become eventual darwin award recipients or Jackass movie contestants

- total indoctrination acceptance....future metrosexual wimps.
