Leos are the best drivers - Really. Geminis came in 2nd.
Edited on Fri Dec-15-06 07:37 AM by leftyladyfrommo
New study shows astrological signs are the best indicators of how people drive. How funny is that?

2. Me too.
I have to admit I got a lot better as I got older. I just don't take chances any more - I used to when I was younger.

and chilled out a lot.

4. Funny!
They didn't mention my sign (Pisces), but I'd think we'd be up there in terms of accidents - not because we're reckless, but because we're always drifting off into a fantasy world. Or so the theory goes. We're also supposed to be prone to overindulgence in matters of alcohol. Well, the former is me, the latter isn't. (I've lived out entire fictional scenarios during cross-country drives, I quite admit!) I don't put a whole lot of stock in it, but it's amusing to speculate.

5. As a Leo, this comes as no surprise. Still, I want to see the numbers.
Otherwise it's meaningless.

6. Wait a minute--how does this affect the actuarial tables?
I mean, I know my rate went down when my credit rating went up..... shouldn't my rates go down (or at least be lower than the rates of those with other astrological signs) if I'm a Leo

:shrug:

7. Well that explains it....
....and here I thought Starbucks was to blame for my lousy driving attitude. (Well it DID improve when I switched to decaf...really!)

11. Alright! I'm a Leo.
I've never had a accident and have only gotten one ticket for speeding... yep, I was driving all of 35 mph
and I got a speeding ticket. :eyes: I'm a real hell on wheels.

14. Same here.
And mine was for doing 45 in a 40. My husband is a Libra, so naturally, I had to send him a link to the article.

13. Looks like I'll have to put the training wheels back on the Ferrari...
Edited on Fri Dec-15-06 08:57 AM by Prag
Funny thing is... I'm the best driver I know.

*knocking woood*

Edit: Libras can't spell either.
Double Edit: It was correct the first time. I KNEW IT!

15. I'm a Leo and consider myself a good driver,
but my dad is a Leo too and OMG the king of road rage. My Gemini mom is the classic little old lady who can barely see over the wheel...

18. I've never even had as much as a parking ticket, let alone a moving violation
I am a very safe driver. Ditto all of the above for my Mom.

I'm a Scorpio, she's an Aries.

This report is bonkers.

19. I'm the only driver I know personally who's had no accidents on
the road.

And I'm a glorious, glorious Leo.

Coincidence? Oh, I think NOT! (where's the "arrogance" smilie when you need one?)

25. Are we Aries really aggressive "me first" drivers? Maybe.
Are we likely to initiate a class action lawsuit because an insurance company raised our rates based on a frivolous study? Very likely. ;)

27. HAHA! My brother is an Aries, and ran into the back of a parked van
that was sticking out of a driveway one day last winter, less than a block from his house. He's not some dumb, irresponsible kid...he's a 40-year-old family practice physician! He reads maps in his lap as he's driving, makes unsettling maneuvers...I'm always nervous when I'm in the car with him.

31. I'm a gemini, and it's because I'm neurotic.
:P

No really, I haven't yet (YET! - knock on wood) because I'm a nervous nelly behind the wheel.

34. Libras the worst?! I demand a recount!
Yes, I've been in three accidents, but none of them were my fault, and I've never gotten a ticket for anything in my 20+ years of driving.

36. Meh, this Aquarius has a spotless driving record...
over the almost 20 years I've been driving. The one accident I've been in was due to the other guy running a red light at full speed. I've had no tickets or citations of any kind... So much for being in the second worst astro sign group...

37. Same here! Never so much as a speeding ticket
I occasionally walk out in front of cars and get honked at, but that's pedestrian absent-mindedness... :blush:
