Baby on board signs are seen by many as a cause of accidents on the road.

The OnePoll survey, commissioned by, found that one in 20 motorists see the notices as reason for collisions, with 46 per cent of respondents claiming that they are hazardous.

As well as this, one-third admitted that the signs are tacky, while five per cent admitted that they had been involved in an accident because of stickers and toys obscuring their view.

Julie Townsend, deputy chief executive at Brake, said: "Baby on board signs can be incredibly helpful for emergency services at the scene of a crash, in knowing whether there's a child involved.

"But this help can become a hindrance if drivers display signs when their child isn't in the vehicle."

The study also found that 46 per cent of people who drive with children in their car admit that they have done so with a "baby on board" sign, whereas 22 per cent claim that they always display the notices.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801468290-ADNFCR
