Women clean up in league of driving convictions

12.03 | 5 March 2010 |

Male motorists are almost one-and-a-half times more likely to have a driving conviction than female motorists, according to findings from the AA’s portfolio of more than one million car insurance customers.

Overall, 18% of motorists have at least one conviction to their name while 4% have two or more. This compares with 14% in a similar survey carried out a decade ago.

Simon Douglas, director of AA car insurance, says: "The vast majority of convictions – 85% of them – are for speeding offences. Second most likely offence is for jumping traffic lights (9%) while a worrying 2% are drink-drive offences. Men are more than twice as likely to have a drink-drive conviction as women.”
