Most dangerous drivers by profession revealed with PRIESTS among worst – The Sun
PRIESTS and car salesmen are among the worst drivers in the UK according to a recent study of 7.8 million insurance enquiries.
Priests come in as fourth most likely to be done for sinful driving with just under three in every thousand holding a conviction, while warehouse loaders top the bill with seven in every thousand getting caught.
Dangerous driving offences include drink and drug driving, aggressive behaviour, racing, ignoring traffic lights, driving while injured or unable to see properly, tailgating, driving while on the phone, overtaking dangerously and driving a dodgy vehicle.
If found guilty you could be sent to jail or pay out an unlimited fine as well as losing between three and 11 points and be disqualified for a minimum of two years.
The surprising clean sheets came from lawyers and professional footballers as well as yoga teachers and vets with not a single one who applied for insurance having been sentenced in the past.
The study found a big age gap in the likelihood of getting nicked for bad driving with 20 to 24-year-olds topping the bill and pensioners (65 and over) being the most sensible road users.
Men were six times more likely to have a conviction than women.
