A study by insurance firm Sheilas Wells in the UK found out that 29% of men are distracted by attractive women while driving in the summer.  The study links men's higher accident rates in the summer to short skirted women... but how can you not stare at some of the outfits women wear nowadays??

Ford driver Mikko Hirvonen crashed out of Rally Finland today in fairly dramatic fashion. The Finn was leading the event when he lost control of his Focus RS and somersaulted over a hill.
Hirvonen rolled his car five times on a right-hand corner just nine kilometers from the start of the rally's fourth stage. He and his co-driver, Jarmo Lehtinen, escaped uninjured, but they're out of the event. Hirvonen's retirement promoted Petter Solberg into the rally lead, while Jari-Matti Latvala moved up to second and Dani Sordo third.
