    Put the sexual ones on all dashboards so all 17-25 year old males don't make it out of the driveway - it'll be safer for everyone!

    So I was driving home and noticed an M&S advert by the side of the road. It was very eye catching even though I probably wasn't the target audience. Having spent 'a while' browsing the M&S website's lingerie section looking for it, I think this is the closest to the actual item, with the model's pose being like this but lying on her back on a bed with a bit more of a cheeky smile - she knew what she was doing!

    With it being common knowledge that the most dangerous drivers are 17-25 year old males, I can say that adverts like the ones I posted must be a contributory factor. Being a responsible driver, I pulled over before cracking one off, but made the mistake of looking up at the advert again so ended up getting home very late. I did notice that a Jamie Redknapp M&S advert was on the other side of it (look in your mirrors whilst driving, people!) which would serve to increase the accident rate amongst 17-25 year old gay men too.

    More seriously though, as my sex drive () isn't that high, any advert is designed to attract your attention. When driving, this means your attention will be drawn from the road, making things more dangerous for you and those around you.

    Should such titillating adverts be banned from the roadside? Or going further, should all adverts be banned from the roadside? After all, drivers ought to be focused on the road, not fantasising about night-time activities or trying to decide whether Coke Zero have finally switched to Shrek as official mascot or if the old ones of Rooney are still up.

    Do the various levels of government have any credibility when they go on about road safety when they're allowing professional attention grabbers to work their magic at the side of the road?

    I live in a rural town, and my estate (housing not manor type thing) is a fairly quiet one outside the town, pretty much in the country.

    So I was walking home from school, and this van was pulled over at the side of the road, on the same side as the footpath I was walking on.

    So as I walked by, I could see that there was someone in the van, as I could see his t-shirt moving.

    I eventually realised, his hand was moving up and down underneath his t-shirt.

    I didn't see a penis, but what else was he doing??

    What makes it worse, that wasn't the only time he did it.

    If you feel so strongly about it, you should contact the Advertising Standards Authority.

    When the first really brazen Wonderbra adverts came out, they caused a number of [admittedly slow] car crashes and shunts as drivers - of both sexes - slowed down to ogle...
    In Denmark a couple of years ago topless models were used by one town to hold speed signs. Traffic slowed remarkably. [Was featured on TopGear at the time]

    I find car accidents arousing, particularly if the girl is slumped ass in the air bleeding while face down on the front bonnet.
