Lawyers and doctors closely follow them in the table of worst drivers.
Accountants were linked to 16,000 accident claims in 2015 while solicitors accounted for 15,000 claims.
Meanwhile, roofers are the UK’s safest drivers, with an annual claims frequency of just 9%, making them four times less likely than accountants to be involved in an accident.
Finance workers are further represented in the top ten worst drivers, with financial advisors at number four and bank managers at number six, according to the study of over a million motorists from car insurance specialist 1ST CENTRAL.
“People often have preconceived ideas about how certain professions behave on the roads. Our data dispels a number of these myths, but it’s interesting to see that a number of professions we trust with our safety are actually the worst on the road,” said Pete Creed, co-founder and chief underwriting officer, at 1ST CENTRAL.
Professions that carry out manual work are less likely to cause a crash, as farm workers, builders and cleaners were all included in the top five safest drivers.
