Army Officers top list of speeding offenders

#2
Maybe now people will stop complaining about the reasons why squaddies have such a hard time getting car insurance!
 
#5
The only reason Army Officers drive so fast is because their admin is so hooped they have to speed to get there late.

:D
 
#6
Don't forget that this story is in a newspaper and in their own little world everyone in the Army is an officer.

What a load of bollocks! "Studies" like this really get on my tits, they are usually wrong and utterly pointless!

"The only profession to contradict the research were masseurs, traditionally seen as a relaxed group, with a bout 20 per cent of them ticketed."

This statement doesn't contradict the research, it disproves the theory, therefore making this entire study pointless!

Phew!

Ever heard the saying statistics and and damn lies, never let the truth get in the way of good story.......

Perhaps Army Officers are just more honest. I didn't realise you had to declare points - I thought it was only bans. So should I tell my insurance company that I have 9?!

Well thats it, I'm going to be claiming a career change when my car insurance is due.. As of January I shall be an Au pair. Lets see if that drops my premium.

Don't most au pairs drive on a foreign licence? Therefore, I presume, their overseas points wouldn't count.

What are your rates Phantom? please send CV and full body photo by PM.

:D :D :D

"For them, two speeding convictions could raise their premiums by a third."
might be an idea. as the man above said - you're fine right up until the point you actually try to make a claim!

A correctly bred, trained and schooled Army Officer can leave 15 minutes past the latest possible time to leave in order to be there on time - and still arrive 5 mins early.
