Hayfever causes bad driving

17th April 2007

Hayfever sufferers could be putting their and other driver’s lives at risk, says a new report.

Of the 5,000 people surveyed one in seven said they suffered from hayfever or other allergies with almost half having driven whilst taking medication despite not knowing whether this could affect their ability to drive.  18% of those surveyed said their driving has been adversely affected as a result of their allergy and one in ten (over 3 million drivers) said they had lost concentration at the wheel due to an impaired reaction caused by hayfever.
