Driver Survey - Which Sun Sign is the Worst Driver
By Nancy R. Fenn
don't shoot the messenger, but Suncorp Metway, Ltd., a multi-faceted
Australian Financial Service, a few years ago ranked car accident claimants
by sun sign in a study of 160,000 accident claims over a three year
period. This is what they found.
The number one worst drivers were Geminis, "typically described
as restless, easily bored and frustrated by things moving slowly,"
explained Warren Duke, Suncorp's national manager of personal insurance.
"They had more car accidents than any other sign."
No astrologer would argue with that description of the twins sign! But
what about the other signs?
According to a news release dated February 10, 2002 @ SUNCORP
website, Duke said the study was carried out as part of Suncorp's
annual review of claims but there was no intention to use astrology
to factor an individual's motor insurance premium.
"We always look for trends in claims to see if there are ways to
reduce our pricing, but there is no intention to introduce astrology
as a rating factor for motor insurance," he said.
Second and third place holders for this dubious honor were Taurus and
Pisces. "Taureans were thought to be obstinate and inflexible,"
said Duke, "while Pisceans could be risk-takers and dare devils."
Your personal astrologer would offer other explanations. First Taurus.
Yes, Taureans can be obstinate and inflexible. But they are also the
most introverted and self-absorbed of all the signs. Their natural path
in life is to think about their own body -- its immediate comfort and
needs -- and to deal with only the most tangible and immediate of realities.
as drivers may run like this. My stomach is full, the temperature in
the car is pretty good, the noise level is good, I'm riding right at
60, I don't have to use the bathroom for at least another hour and there's
plenty of gas in the tank. At a very fundamental level, the world outside
the chassis of their car may not exist at all.
driving requires spatial perception and processing of much abstract
information (speed, flow and distance, this is counter to their natural
way of processing the world around them.
in the number three position, is the other sign that lives in a world
of its own. Duke describes them as potential risk takers and daredevils.
However, there are other signs we would nominate much more readily for
a description like this.
are the gentle dreamers of the zodiac. They may spend many hours a day
in fantasy worlds, escaping the painful realities of life on the physical
plane and more often than not the pain of being in a physical body.
They often experience the whole manifest world as an illusion and their
presence in it as temporary and of little importance.
This Piscean detachment from the physical can lead to unconscious feelings
of invulnerability or invincibility, also to unconscious feelings of
victimization and sacrifice. If you are momentarily deluded into thinking
you don't have physical limits, and that your life is but a fleeting
moment in the eternal life of the soul, you can respond to situations
of physical danger in illogical ways. Or, at the very least, be slow
on the uptake.
Please don't take these descriptions as critical. The qualities of Taurus
and Pisces are invaluable in their proper spheres of influence. Astrology
is not a critical tool. It is a tool of enlightenment. Something you
read here and become conscious about may save your life.
Duke continues, "Capricornians [sic], who came last on the list,
[are] typically described as patient and careful."
No argument with that from the professional astrologer. It's no surprise
Caps are the safest behind the wheel. They're the safest at everything!
Their patience and sense of responsibility are legendary. Imagine the
thrill I felt when I divorced my Gemini husband and began dating a Capricorn.
I couldn't believe how much safer I felt in the passenger seat.
The great middle ground of this survey is held by sun signs in this

Is this what you would have expected? There's something else fascinating
about this list.
at SunCorp MetWay would have no way of knowing it but the signs in the
tenth and eleventh positions are the exact opposites of those in first
and second positions. This tells us a great deal about polarities, doesn't
it? Scorpio is opposite Taurus and Sagittarius is opposite Gemini.
may stay safe in their cars the same way they do in life, by having
highly developed neutral or higher minds (Ninth House). Another name
of this mind is intuition. The highly developed sense of flow and good
timing characteristic of Sagittarians is what makes them the lucky sign.
Furthermore, their minds are right at home dealing with traffic patterns,
flow and spatial relations.
on the other hand, may stay safe because they are intimately involved
with the inner lives of others in the same way their opposite sign Taurus
is defended against this information. Scorpios are sensitive to energy
- whether it is a foot away or thousands of miles away -- and can feel
someone "coming up from behind" at many different levels.
Scorpios know if you've had a fight with your wife the night before
or if you're thinking about embezzling or having an affair with your
best friend's husband. That's why we always feel like they can see right
through us. They can.
would be the drivers who would instinctively "wake up" in
time to let a cocaine addict pass them at 90 or give a wide berth to
a passive aggressive soccer mom hassling two kids in the back seat and
a phone conversation with her husband all at the same time.
