Next time you smash your ride into something, just blame it on the stars. Tell the cop Mercury was in retrograde, causing your driving to follow suit and thus leading to the crash of your Mercury. Watch out if you're an Aries with an Aries - that's a dangerous thing to be.

InsuranceHotline.com, a Canadian website that provides insurance quotes to drivers, conducted a study correlating accident rates to zodiac signs. You'd think age and ability would hold more water, but apparently astrology trumps even changing zip codes when determining how prone a particular driver is to accidents. Libras are the worst, followed by Aquarians. The best were Leos and Geminis. As for that Aries, they have a "me first" attitude that leads them into bad juju. If InsuranceHotline's study is accurate, it appears that everyone on the road is an Aries.

      I'm a Leo. I have put so many cars in the graveyard, both on the track, and off, that I can't remember how many there have been. In life it's said that 90% of everything is sh*t, and the other 10% is used to wipe it up. So go's astrology, and the studies like this. I can just see the insurance companies using THIS to up your rates.

      What part of "Libras are the worst, followed by Aquarians" did the author of this blog piece, as well as all the commentators, NOT understand? Has everyone forgotten how to read?

      Anyhow, I'm very heavily into Astrology, and would just like to comment that the sun sign is such an infinitesimally small part of a person's astrological story, that trying to guess *anything* based solely off that one bit of data is like trying to guess someone's religious beliefs based solely on the color of their socks.

      To all the folks saying this is bogus because they have never gotten in a wreak, the follow up question is but how many wreaks have you CAUSED!

      I know someone like this that have never gotten in a wreak, but its only because the other people paying attention are having to do all the accident avoidence measures while they continue along talking or messing with the dials totally oblivious to the mayham they are creating.

      Hi, I know I'm late to the party here, but I'd just like to tell SouthernMyst that you're wasting tons of precious time on bunk like astrology. There is absolutely no truth to astrolgoy, what-so-ever, not even a little bit I'm sorry, but you're deluding yourself.
      Here's a beautifully written blow-by-blow dismantling of astrology by one of the world's most well known skeptics.

      that is bull because I am a Libra and I am a rally car driver and an AA driver!

      lol, I've gotten into too many stupid accidents to support the Gemini theory. Of course I've stopped driving like an idiot, so the accidents have also stopped with it.

      If this insurance companies takes their own study seriously I know which company deserves to go bankrupt, lol.

      I have never been in an accident and don't intend to be. Only once was a pulled over for speeding and the judge let me off because of my excellent driving record.
