Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears take note – there is a new device designed to protect a lady’s modesty and put an end to revealing mishaps when getting out of a car.

The eccentric people at Sheilas’ Wheels have devised the Exi-quette Car Curtain (a combination of exit and etiquette, they say) to prevent unfortunate women becoming victims of “flashing” incidents.

Research (really?) showed that more than 64% of women have been involved in at least one unplanned exposure when exiting a car, revealing far more than they bargained for.

In the same survey, Toxic pop star Spears was voted the worst (or should that be the best?) celebrity flasher, followed by Jodie Marsh and Paris Hilton.

Etiquette expert Jean Broke-Smith said: “Hardly a day goes by without a celebrity being snapped falling out of a car. What value, if any, does Britain place on modesty today?

“If you want to be treated like a lady you need to behave like one. However, getting out of a car elegantly is no easy feat and takes practice.”

Well said.
