An Australian insurance company studied the number of accident claims for people born in different star signs. Article here. For anybody who knows astrology the results shouldn't really be surprising at all. Geminis are on the average the worst drivers, and Capricorns are the safest.
You a Gemini? Drive Carefully and Get Insurance

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Born a Gemini? Watch out on the roads and get insurance.
Better still, have a Capricorn drive your car.
A study released on Monday by Australian financial services group Suncorp Metway Ltd that ranked car accident claimants by star sign found the most accident-prone were Geminis, closely followed by Taureans and then Pisceans.
"Geminis, typically described as restless, easily bored and frustrated by things moving slowly, had more car accidents than any other sign," said Warren Duke, Suncorp's national manager of personal insurance.
Taureans were thought to be obstinate and inflexible, while Pisceans could be risk-takers and dare devils, he said.
Capricorns were the safest behind the wheel due to their patience and careful driving.
The light-hearted study was based on 160,000 car accident insurance claims received over the past three years.
Suncorp Metway said it had no intention to alter its premiums according to 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
