Great reading, if you believe in that sort of thing

Great reading, if you believe in that sort of thing…

If you’re born under the star sign Scorpio, you’re far more likely to get penalty points according to a new study conducted by AA Ireland.

Fire and passion are a trait of Scorpios and it seems that this translates across to their driving as drivers born between October 23 and November 21 have the most penalty points.

But what about the rest of the star signs?

Well it seems if you are born under the Taurus sign, you’re inherently lucky because you have the least penalty points of all the star signs.

Surely this earns you a discount on your insurance? Star signs are basically scientific fact after all…


Unfortunately, insurance providers don’t take your star sign into account when quoting you your premium which we think is all down to politics.

Conor Faughnan, Director of Consumer Affairs at The AA said that, “We look at lots of serious things here in the AA but we’re not above a little light-hearted fun as well.

“To be fair the differences were small and are not significant enough statistically to attract insurance loadings. Feckless Scorpios need not fear an insurance price increase, unless of course they have a higher risk for other reasons.”

The list of the most likely zodiac signs to get penalty points is below…

1. Scorpio

2. Sagittarius

3. Cancer

4. Leo

5. Pisces

6. Gemini

7. Aquarius

8. Capricorn

9. Virgo

10. Aries

11. Libra

12. Taurus
