PRESS RELEASE: February 8, 2012 - InsuranceHotline.com has released a new infographic, which allows people to see how their astrology sign measures up against others. The zodiac wheel is designed to outline a person’s likelihood of receiving a traffic ticket or causing a car accident based on his or her astrology sign. To identify the type of driver by astrology sign, InsuranceHotline.com used its database to pull the number of traffic tickets and car accidents entered by birth date during the car insurance quoting process.
The results are grouped in three categories: maniac driver, on-the-fence driver, and sane driver. When it comes to car accidents, here are the astrology signs grouped into each category:
- Maniac driver – Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn
- On-the-fence driver – Leo and Virgo
- Sane driver – Aquarius, Pisces, Taurus, Scorpio and Sagittarius
For traffic tickets, some astrology signs remain in the same categories while others have shifted:
- Maniac driver –Gemini and Cancer
- On-the-fence driver – Pieces, Aries, Taurus, Leo , Virgo, Libra and Capricorn
- Sane driver – Aquarius, Scorpio and Sagittarius
Looks like Gemini and Cancer drivers should be careful while driving, as drivers with these astrology signs have the highest number of accidents and tickets according to our database.
This infographic also outlines the number of tickets received by marital status:
- Single – 24.47%
- Married – 16.10%
- Divorced – 21.43%
- Common Law – 25.06%
- Widowed – 12.94%
It’s interesting to note that drivers who are married have a low percentage of tickets received; however, drivers who are in a common law relationships have a high percentage of tickets.
InsuranceHotline.com has also launched a driving risk factor quiz that is available on Facebook, where people are able to find out what type of driver they are, by answering four simple questions. To complete this quiz, visit facebook.com/ihcom.
