London, June 24 (ANI): Drivers named Rupert or Juliet are the most likely to be caught speeding, researchers have found.
Researchers looked at more than three million motorists to identify the names most likely to have points for speeding.
They found women called Juliet, Susannah, Justine, Deirdre or Alexis and men named Rupert, Julian, Piers, Giles or Justin are most likely to put their foot to the floor.
The research also revealed that male speed freaks are most often employed as chartered surveyors, sales managers, surgeons, TV producers, company chairmen or barristers.
Our research does indicate that people with certain names and occupations are more likely to have a speeding conviction than others, Sian Lewis of car insurance company Diamond, which carried out the study, said.
It was most surprising to see surgeons and other well-qualified professions top the list of occupations most likely to have a speeding conviction.
Many people would also consider the names Juliet, Alexis, Rupert and Piers as traditionally middle class, so it's also interesting to see them feature highly.
Men named Terrence, Jake, Jordan, Joshua, Jacob or Declan, on the other hand, tend to be law-abiding on the roads, as do women called Molly, Shannon, Bethany, Lily, Courtney or Caitlin. (ANI)
