Is your ‘astrological sign’ driving insurance rates?
When bad things happen to good drivers, is your ‘Astrological Sign’ to blame? That’s a question that drove Toronto-based Lee Romanov, president of InsuranceHotline.com to write her book on "Car Carma."
"I wondered why some drivers always got into accidents and others always got tickets," said Romanov. "So I compared 100,000 drivers, their tickets and accidents, to their astrological sign." The results are overwhelming, showing drivers of certain astrological signs are prone to getting more tickets, while others seemed destined to have accidents."
Her study ranks astrological signs based on driving data on 100,000 North American drivers, gathered by InsuranceHotline.com’s online quoting service over the last six years. The data was collated by Stanford University professor Keyvan Mohajer.
"Insurance companies weigh a number of variables when detrminign your insurance rate," notes Romanov, "such as where you live and the type of vehicle you drive." Ironically, they overlook the most significant factor of all — your astrological sign.
So where do you fit in? Here are the Zodiac signs that had the most influence over drivers, causing them to have the greatest overall number of tickets and accidents, from worst to best:
