Now that our annual fete is done with, my life can get back to normal.

Last night, someone reminded me of a streak of bad luck I had with my car.
Car insurance is one of those necessary evils...especially in Canada where getting caught driving without it can work itself into some prison bitch time.

I found a site that has a lot of good information on car insurance, and you can get free comparison quotes, if you're shopping for a new insurance company...

I hate that sort of, if there's something that can keep me off of the phone haggling and being transfered, and call prompted, all the better.

While we're talking about insurance, I had to laugh:

Based on a statistical study of 100,000 drivers, Lee Romanov (Author of Car Karma) ranks the astrological signs with the safest driving records in the order listed below.

  1. Leo drivers (born July 23 to August 22) finish first, with big egos that are generous and comfortable with sharing the road.
  2. Gemini drivers (born May 21 to June 20) were the second-safest due to their multi-tasking abilities.
  3. Cancer drivers (born June 21 to July 22) are homebodies who consider the road to be part of their extended families.
  4. Virgo drivers (born August 23 to September 22) have a nervous attention to detail, which occasionally results in accidents.
  5. Capricorn drivers (born December 22 to January 19) are goal-oriented with a keen focus on their destinations.
  6. Sagittarius drivers (born November 22 to December 21) are experienced risk takers and are talkative.
  7. Taurus drivers (born April 20 to May 20) are stubborn and have been known to charge at red lights.
  8. Scorpio drivers (born October 23 to November 21) like to get revenge via road rage.
  9. Pisces drivers (born February 19 to March 20) enjoy daydreaming and need to focus their complete attention while driving.
  10. Aries drivers (born March 21 to April 19) have a "me first" child-like nature that drives them into trouble.
  11. Aquarius drivers (born January 20 to February 18) are impulsive and often speed to show their rebellion.
  12. Libra drivers (born September 23 to October 22) crave balance and consensus but are indecisive during rush-hour traffic.

Astrological Signs and Traffic Tickets

Romanov found that the astrological signs with the fewest traffic tickets in order, are:

Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, Cancer, Leo, Scorpio, Taurus, Libra, Capricorn, Aquarius, Aries, Pisces

Astrological Signs and Accidents

Astrological Signs with the fewest accidents, with the best-driving listed first.

Maybe if insurance companies actually used this theory, I'd get a better insurance rate.
