Construction workers are the safest drivers on UK roads according to data from an insurance company.
According to the Aviva Drive app - which uses smartphone technology to record a motorist’s driving style over 200 miles to give a score out of 10 based on how safely they drive in relation to acceleration, braking and cornering - 68.5% of construction workers scored between 7.1 and 10 follow by staff nurses at 67.6% and operations managers at 61.8%.
Social workers and soldiers complete the top five at 58.3% and 57.6% respectively.
Adam Beckett, propositions director for Aviva, said: “The Aviva Drive app is designed to record how safely people drive to produce an individual score for that person. There are lots of factors which affect how safely a person drives and we’re not saying that everyone in a certain profession drives in a particular way, but it’s interesting to see that some occupations score particularly well.”
