Children the top distraction motors.
Twenty-nine per cent of drivers admit that their children are their biggest distraction while driving.
Busy lifestyles and a constant need to multi-task also feature heavily with mobile phone use (24 per cent) and texting and social media updates (10 per cent) also featuring.
Twenty-three per cent of young drivers aged 18 to 24 find this a distraction.
IAM chief executive Simon Best said: "People who think they can multi-task while driving are kidding themselves. If you take your eyes of the road for just two seconds at 30 miles per hour, you'll travel close to 90 feet, effectively blind."
