The (Zodiac) Wheel of Fortune

Are Taureans Better Drivers Than Librans?

hhh...the answer is finally upon us to the ever-present, ultra-important question: does your astrological sign determine whether you're a good driver?


Reuters recently reported on a study released by Australian financial services group Suncorp Metway Ltd that ranked car accident claimants by star sign. It found the most accident-prone were Geminis, no surprise if one believes the typical description of a Gemini as restless and impatient.

The study indicated Capricorns were the safest behind the wheel due to their patience and careful driving.

The study was based on 160,000 car accident insurance claims received over the past three years.

Suncorp Metway told Reuters it would not change premiums to reflect a person's star sign.

The company listed car accident claims by star sign as follows, with the most accident-prone at the top:

1. Gemini, May 21-June 21
2. Taurus, April 20-May 20
3. Pisces, February 19-March 20
4. Virgo, August 23-September 22
5. Cancer, June 22-July 22
6. Aquarius, January 20-February 18
7. Aries, March 21-April 19
8. Leo, July 23-August 22
9. Libra, September 23-October 22
10. Sagittarius, November 22-December 21
11. Scorpio, October 23-November 21
12. Capricorn, December 22-January 19
