Ladies, start your engines.

Actually, on second thought, don't.

A new study from UK insurance company Churchill has found that more than 20 percent of women take their eyes off the road to check themselves out in the rearview mirror, the Mirror reports.

And if that didn't make you want to buckle up and say a few Hail Marys before hitting the road, maybe this will: 7 percent of women 'fessed up to applying makeup from behind the wheel, while 25 percent hit the gas in dangerously high heels, according to the paper.

We're not the only ones driving under the influence of fashion. The poll also reportedly found that 8 percent of men shave and change their clothes (what?) while driving.

"Women get a lot of bad press for their driving skills, however, men can be dangerously distracted too," Churchill's Claire Foster told the paper.

No kidding! Get a grip, people -- because if our precious convertible gets a dent because of your stubble or stilettos, there's gonna be hell to pay!

Meanwhile, women putting on makeup cause nearly half a million car crashes in the UK.
