Black-car drivers most likely to break speed limitsApril 27th, 2009 - 2:31 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 27 (ANI): People who drive black cars are most likely to break speed limits, a new poll has found.
The survey, by insurer elephant.co.uk, found that almost 25.4 per cent of black-car owners have speeding convictions.
And they are also 9 per cent more likely than average drivers to get speeding penalty points.
Next “most speedy” colour in line was grey, with 25.1 per cent of owners of grey vehicles having speeding convictions.
The poll based on a study of data from 1.7 million drivers revealed that the next colours in the speed-conviction list were silver, blue and brown
Purple car owners were least likely to have exceeded limits, while owners of white, red and yellow cars also have comparatively few convictions.
“Evidently for drivers (of black and grey] cars, the temptation to break speed limits is just too great,” the Scotsman quoted elephant.co.uk managing director Brian Martin, as saying. (ANI)
