Saga Insurance Find The Blues Drives Us Wild
A survey carried out by Saga Insurance has found that the music we listen to in the car affects our driving, with blues the most likely to end up with a speeding fine.
According to the survey just under half of those who listen to blues have been caught speeding, followed by country music, reggae and then hip hop as the top 4 speeders. It was also interesting that easy listening drivers were more likely to speed than rock or pop listeners according to the Saga Insurance survey.
Maybe insurers like Saga Insurance will use this information to assess risk in the future. So if you are put on hold with your insurer and they then ask what you thought of the music just before giving you your car insurance quote be very careful what you say!
