LAOIS ladies like to shine - and a new survey shows that the women of Laois are the country’s most likely to cause a flat battery by leaving their car lights on.

An AA membership survey of over 9,200 people showed that women aged 17 to 24 living in Laois are the worst in the State for leaving the lights on and killing the battery.

However, motorists in the neighbouring county of Offaly were deemed to be more likely to fill their car with the wrong fuel, which can cost up to €1,500 in repairs.
