Are Your Driving Skills Written In The Stars?


Visitors: 204

Insurance companies evaluate a number of risk factors when calculating car insurance premiums but perhaps there's one that has been overlooked - a driver's star sign.

According to a survey of 4.9million drivers, Capricorns are the most focused and conscientious drivers on the road - which is good news for Britain's Formula 1 hopeful Lewis Hamilton as he embarks on a driver's championship challenge.

By contrast, the likes of David Beckham, who was born under the Taurus sign, do not have so much luck. Taureans, Pisceans and Leos have the worst driving habits out of the 12 signs of the zodiac. Pisceans hold the most speeding convictions, Taureans have the most convictions for failing to comply with road signs and Leos have the most convictions for failing to drive with due care and consideration.

Car insurance providers already consider the year we were born in determining our car insurance quotes - the older you are, the more likely you are to be responsible on the road. However, should they now be considering the month we were born in too?

Basing a car insurance quote on your star sign may appear ridiculous, but these statistics should act as a timely reminder for motorists to think about their actions behind the wheel. Your driving record is crucial - and it could make all the difference between you receiving cheap car insurance, or an expensive deal.

Being more aware of your road habits, keeping your speed down, taking notice of road signs and generally being more careful behind the wheel will reduce the risk of an accident and make you less likely to get in trouble with the law.

This in turn will earn you cheap car insurance premiums, while allowing you to build up a no-claims discount that could further slash your car insurance costs.
