Admiral Insurance recently carried out a survey of it’s customer base and analysed the most common type of motoring conviction. The survey was carried out on drivers who notified them of a conviction between September 2017 and August 2018.

Unsurprisingly, speeding offences made up for 3 of the top 5 convictions with using a mobile and not obeying traffic signals also ranking highly.

As part of the survey, Admiral also looked at other elements such as who was likely to have what type of conviction based on age and occupation.

Speeding offences being the most common resulted in the following findings.

Those less likely to be convicted of speeding were insurance clerks, credit managers and dressmakers. Supermarket assistants and substitute teachers also ranked 4 and 5 on the ‘safe list’.

Cars most commonly caught speeding

Interestingly, BMW was not number 1 for cars most commonly caught speeding, instead, this slot was taken by Mercedes.
