Drivers should take care not to lose concentration by changing radio stations or turning up the volume whilst singing along; or loading their own music from ancillary devices to avoid the Christmas song replays.
United Kingdom (PRWEB UK) 5 December 2013
With the festive season fast approaching and Christmas songs becoming a daily feature of radio station playlists, a 1st Central Insurance survey reveals The Pogues’ Fairytale of New York is the nation’s favourite Christmas song to drive along to.
The top 5 countdown:
5 – Baby its Cold Outside - Cerys Matthews & Tom Jones
4 – Last Christmas – George Michael
3 – Do they Know it’s Christmas? – Band Aid
2 – Driving Home for Christmas – Chris Rea
1 – Fairytale of New York – The Pogues
Whilst drivers surveyed found the radio the least distracting in-car activity compared to mobile phones, children, satellite-navigation systems and chatting to passengers; 1st Central is cautioning motorists to remain focussed whilst behind the wheel this festive season.
Andy James, CEO, 1st Central Insurance Management says: “Seasonal shopping is underway and roads and pavements are bustling with traffic and pedestrians. Christmas is a magical time of year with Christmas songs all part of the tradition. Drivers should take care not to lose concentration by changing radio stations or turning up the volume whilst singing along; or loading their own music from ancillary devices to avoid the Christmas song replays. We wish all our customers and road users a safe, traffic jam free December.”
