Greeks say provocative ads cause 10% of accidents

We really wonder how big of a problem this could actually be but apparently, racy ads showing scantily-clad models are so distracting to Greek drivers that a lawyer has launched a campaign to have them banned.

Lawyer, Athanasios Tsokos, who lost a son in a car accident that he believes was caused by a racy billboard, has launched a £8m claim to get provocative roadside advertising taken down.

According to The Guardian, an Athens traffic official, roadside adverts are responsible for 10% of all accidents in the capital.
