WE’VE ALL seen some pretty shocking rides on the road, but now Britain’s worst drivers have been confirmed.
Results are broken down by city based on 17 million auto insurance inquiries in 2021 where the main driver reported a claim within the last five years.
The study conducted by MoneySuperMarketfound the London Borough of Sutton to have the worst drivers in the UK for the second year running.
About 19% of drivers in sutton Have an insurance claim on their records within the past five years.
Next are CroydonHemel Hempstead, Huddersfield, Slough, Enfield, Romford, Stevenage, Birmingham and Dartford all with 18% of drivers making a claim.
Meanwhile, the best drivers can be found in Shrewsbury.
Here, only 9% of drivers had reported damage in the last five years.
Inverness came second with 10% after being named Britain’s Safest Drivers by MoneySuperMarket last year.
Dorchester, Belfast, Hereford and Llandudno were not far behind with 11% of drivers.
Ipswich, Taunton, Torquay and Aberdeen made up the rest of the top 10 at 12%.
The results also showed that 17 to 19 year olds were the least likely to have an accident.
According to MoneySuperMarket, 4% of youngest drivers had made a claim as a primary driver.
That seems strange until you realize that these drivers haven’t been on the road very long and therefore have the smallest window of opportunity to have an accident.
This is supported by the fact that since 2016 motorists aged 20 to 24 have been the most likely to have claimed accident damage.
In fact, according to the results, 17% of this age group have done so.
Sara Newell, motor insurance expert at MoneySuperMarket, said: “As you might expect, our research has found that drivers in built-up, urban areas are more likely to have a major accident claim than those based in more rural or remote areas.
“Whether you live in a busy city or have a history of accidents – or both – the best way to save on your car insurance is to not auto-renew and shop around for a cheaper deal – this could save you money to £3,012.”
