Dancers Or Dentists? Britain’s Most Law Abiding Drivers

Tiger.co.uk, one of the UK’s leading car insurance comparison sites, has published the results of its study into the correlation between occupation and driving convictions. The study, drawn from an analysis of over 270,000 recent car insurance quotes, examines the relationship between 313 different occupations, average annual mileage and the number of motorists with driving convictions. The results are surprising, with dancing teachers/choreographers topping the table when it comes to miles driven per motoring conviction, with convictions being earned every 23,500 miles driven. This compares with an average of all drivers who, according to the research, pick up driving convictions for every 53,553 miles driven. Also in the top 10 occupations most likely to have points on driving licences are haulage contractors, enrolled nurses, midwives, funeral directors and surveyors. At the other end of the scale, Britain’s most law-abiding drivers seem to be dental technicians, legal clerks, students and cloakroom attendants. People in these professions drive for more than 120,000 miles before picking up motoring convictions.

Commenting on the results of the study, Andrew Goulborn, the car insurance comparison site’s Commercial Director, said: “We think there’s a wealth of really interesting results here. We started this exercise by taking data from almost 300,000 car insurance quotes that were run through Tiger.co.uk and looked at the relationship between occupations and the incidence of driving convictions in the last 5 years. However, what this didn’t do was to account for the fact that some occupations require people to spend more time on the road. So we added a third dimension to the data analysed, average annual mileage, and then produced a set of data based on a “miles per conviction” score for each occupation. The lower the number, the greater the chance that members of that occupation had picked up one or more convictions in the last 5 years. Finally, we excluded any occupations where we didn’t have more than 50 drivers in our data so as to minimise the possibility of artificially skewing results. The study has revealed a number of surprises. No one here would have guessed that dancing teachers, midwives and funeral directors would be vying for the title of Britain’s least law-abiding motorists. And at the other end of the scale, hats off to the UK’s kennel workers, launderers and dental technicians whose driving appears to stay well within the law (most of the time)”.
