Fasten your seat belts -- it's going to be a bumpy summer.

According to a new survey from UK insurance company Sheilas' Wheels, male drivers are more likely to cause crashes than women in the summer because they are distracted by women in skimpy clothing, the Daily Express reports.

So what -- our bikinis and Daisy Dukes could be considered reckless endangerment?

The poll found that 29 percent of men admit to rubber-necking at scantily clad females while driving in the summer, according to the paper.

But just 3 percent of women drivers reportedly copped to being distracted by men's summertime apparel, though, to be fair, we have yet to drive by Giorgio Armani in a Speedo -- though not for lack of trying.

Hot temperatures were also reportedly responsible for incidences of road rage.

"Research shows men are far more easily distracted behind the wheel than women," behavioral psychologist Donna Dawson told the paper.

"Distractions such as billboards or an attractive woman walking down the street can quickly take their attention away from driving.

"Testosterone also plays a part as it makes men more prone to aggression, especially when frustrated by a confined space such as a car –- and men are quicker than women to expose such irritability in hot weather."

Yikes. We might just start covering up. The last thing we need are a bunch of reckless and randy Mel Gibsons on the road!

Meanwhile, male motorists should avoid gawking at Blake Lively's sheer-paneled Chanel dress while behind the wheel.
