Ironically, judges and attorneys took the top spot on the 10 Most Dangerous Drivers by Profession list based on accident claims as a percentage of quotes. According to insurance.com, 44% of attorneys who received a car insurance comparison quote from insurance.com had previously made an accident claim.
Financial professionals came in at number two, but, hey, they’re hard workers. “Professions that demand multi-tasking – being on the phone, moving fast on a tight schedule – are prone to more distractions and, from there, more accidents,” said Sam Belden, insurance.com vice president, in a press release.
Rounding out the top 10 are:
- Government worker (GS6)
- Bartender or Waiter
- Other – Professional
- Dog Groomer
The least dangerous drivers, according to the analysis, are athletes (17% had previously made an accident claim) and homemakers (24%).
