What does your horoscope sign reveal about your driving?
Research by accident management specialist Accident Exchange reports that if you are born under the star sign of Gemini you are more likely to be involved in a car accident.
The study of over 115,000 accidents found that Gemini drivers made up nearly 9 percent of all claims handled by the company. The survey is based on a very large sample so it is hard to ignore, we already know that star signs influence the type of career you pursue with such people as soldiers and artists grouped at different points of the calendar. There is a clear majority of professional footballers that are born under the signs of Sagittarius, Scorpio and Aries. The different characteristics of star signs could apply to driving temperaments.
Taureans rank second place in the table of most accident prone star signs making up 8.84 percent of all drivers with the fiery Arians coming a close third. The quick minded Scorpios and laid back Sagittarians were the least likely to be involved in a collision.
Celebrity drivers involved in recent motoring accidents include Courtney Cox (Gemini), Morgan Freeman (Gemini), Shia LeBeouf (Gemini), George Clooney (Taurus) and Jerry Seinfeld (Taurus). However, Top Gear presenter, Richard Hammond, who was involved in a near-fatal crash whilst filming, defies his more fortunate Sagittarian star sign.
Interestingly, the three most accident-prone star signs are from consecutive months of the year, suggesting drivers born between March and June are most at risk in their vehicles.
