They can.. Their thinking as drivers may run like this. Duke describes them as potential risk takers and daredevils. Cancer
6. Or, at the very least, be slow on the uptake.
5. They had more car accidents than any other sign.
Scorpios, 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. Libra
10. Its no surprise Caps are the safest behind the wheel. Leo
9. However, there are other signs we would nominate much more readily for a description like this. They often experience the whole manifest world as an illusion and their presence in it as temporary and of little importance.
Duke continues, Capricornians [sic], who came last on the list, [are] typically described as patient and careful.
“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.
Please dont take these descriptions as critical.
The great middle ground of this survey is held by sun signs in this order:
Scorpios would be the drivers who would instinctively wake up in time to let a cocaine addict pass them at 95 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. Scorpio [and Capricorn in last position as the best drivers]
The folks at SunCorp would have no way of knowing it but, Capricorn to the side, the signs in the last two positions and first two positions are the exact opposite. Yes, Taureans can be obstinate and inflexible. 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. Astrology is not a critical tool. Furthermore, their minds are right at home dealing with traffic patterns, flow and spatial relations.

Please dont shoot the messenger, but Suncorp Metway, Ltd., a multi-faceted Australian Financial Service, ranked car accident claimants by sun sign last year in a study of 160,000 accident claims over the previous three year period.
Pisces, in the number three position, is the other sign that lives in a world of its own. My stomach is full, the temperature in the car is pretty good, the noise level is good, Im riding right at 60, I dont have to use the bathroom for at least another hour and theres plenty of gas in the tank. Aries
8. Something you read here and become conscious about may save your life.
Is this what you would have expected? There is something else fascinating about this list. Sagittarius
11. Fenn has been a professional astrologer in the San Diego area for over 25 years.
Sagittarians may stay safe in their cars the same way they do in life, by having superbly developed higher minds (Ninth House). Thats why we always feel like they can see right through us.
According to a news release dated February 10, 2002 @ http://corporate.suncorpmetway.com.au/news/news0142.asp , Duke said the study was carried out as part of Suncorps annual review of claims but there was no intention to use astrology to factor an individual’s motor insurance premium.
Pisceans are the gentle dreamers of the zodiac. This is what they found.
This Piscean detachment from the physical can lead to unconscious feelings of invulnerability or invincibility, also to unconscious feelings of victimization and sacrifice. The highly developed sense of flow and good timing characteristic of Sagittarians is what makes them the lucky sign. Since freeway 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. Theyre the safest at everything! Their patience and sense of responsibility are legendary. 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. Your personal astrologer would offer other explanations. The qualities of Taurus and Pisces are invaluable in their proper spheres of influence. Taureans were thought to be obstinate and inflexible, said Duke, while Pisceans could be risk-takers and dare devils. But what about the other signs?
The number one worst drivers were Geminis, typically described as restless, easily bored and frustrated by things moving slowly, explained Warren Duke, Suncorps national manager of personal insurance. First Taurus.
No argument with that from the professional astrologer.
No astrologer would argue with that description of the twins sign and probably this isn’t very surprising news. Aquarius
7. At a very fundamental level, the world outside the chassis of their car may not exist at all. Imagine the thrill I felt in the passenger seat when I divorced my Gemini husband and began dating a Capricorn. This tells us a great deal about polarities, doesnt it? Scorpio is opposite Taurus and Sagittarius is opposite Gemini. If you are momentarily deluded into thinking you dont 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.
Where does your sign fall in this survey? Whatever your sun sign, lets all learn from this survey and be safe on the road.
Second and third place holders for this dubious honor are Taurus and Pisces. Scorpios know if youve had a fight with your wife the night before or if youre thinking about embezzling or having an affair with your best friends husband. 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. It is a tool of enlightenment. Another name for this mind is intuition. But they are also the most introverted and self absorbed of all the signs
