    did you know that the huge huge pictures of woman that are put up around certain areas ( when driving especially adverts for products involving a sexy female ) cause road accidents?

    it cannot be made ' too sexy ' ( distraction of the woman pictures causes male drivers to crash )

    I've heard of this happening.

    My home town is the home of Pretty Polly tights, and on the side of their factory was a real big picture of a young, lingerie clad lady, obviously just promoting tights.

    Pretty Polly were urged by Ashfield District Council to remove the picture after drivers were tending to divert their "due care and attention" elsewhere.
