61 per cent of Aussie drivers -- equivalent to 11 million people -- admit to driving distracted, according to a new report.

The most common dangerous driving habits revealed in the latest Finder Driving Report were:

- Eating a meal behind the wheel (44%)

- Driving in thongs (25%)

- Taking a phone call (10%)

- Sending text messages (11%)

According to Finder’s Taylor Blackburn:

“Taking your eyes off the road for even a second can mean the difference between life and death, so it’s staggering to think how many Aussies are being so reckless.

“Whether you’re looking away to text, take a bite of food or put on makeup, every moment you aren’t focused on the road can be catastrophic.”
