It has always been a running joke that people who drive BMW's, Mercedes and Audi's are irritating drivers but this study has taken it to a new level.

A study by GoCompare (insurance company in the UK) has shown that the worst drivers on Britain's roads are in fact BMW, Audi and Mercedes drivers.

BMW drivers top the list as being the most dangerous on public roads with Audi hot on their heels and Mercedes in third. Perhaps not something to be that proud of!

Cornwall Live reported that BMW 420d drivers are most likely to speed, run a red light and be at fault in an accident.

BMW 420d

Below the 420d is the Audi A5 which has a 15.5% likelihood of being involved in an accident. With Mercedes its the C220 then the E220 then in 5th place is in fact the Jaguar XF.

As for those who are least likely to have an accident, that's Ford KA drivers, Suzuki Altos, Kia Picantos and Nissan Micras... I'm afraid I will have to disagree with this as I wrote off my very own Ford KA not too long ago...

Do you agree with this study? If not, who are the most dangerous drivers?

  • I drive a BMW, for the first me in my life, but I’m not surprised. The cars quoted seem to be sales-rep specials, probably rushing to the next meeting. I agree that the most worrying people are the old and the gormless. It also worries me that the young are taught to drive like old women and rewarded for it by the spy-in-the-car insurance boxes. How do you ever gain the experience of how to react in extremis if you never learn the capabilities of the car? I use that kind of experience and the performance of my car to give myself and other people more space - generally works well

  • Those cars that a least likely to in an accident are driven by pensioners where I live (rural Worcestershire) and while they might not be in an accident they have caused loads as people try to get passed them as they driven so slowly by the kind of old people who are shocked every morning that they are still alive. I followed a Micra yesterday being driven at less than 30 in a 60!
