Motorist Signs to watch out for

April 2010

Whether it’s a full moon or the stars aligning the cosmic powers have spoken to reveal that both male and female Cancerians are the most likely to have a fender bender after accruing the highest accident claims (8.82%) over a 12 month period says low cost car insurance provider Budget Direct.

A Budget Direct data extract review of over 30,000 accident claims across Australia highlights which Zodiac signs were more likely to be involved in an accident and reports on the most popular times for accidents by the month and day of the week.

In May last year the Virgo males had two percent more accident claims than any other sign while both Capricorn and Leo females had the lowest. And while the results were close, both the Scorpio and Leo signs had the most accident claims in June which might be an indication for those signs to take it easy in the coming weeks,” Ms Ward said.
