In recent years we learned that insurance companies were quite fond of using customer's credit scores as rationale for raising rates on some folks. The thinking is, your credit score accurately indicates of how you handle responsibility and what kind of risks you take. Therefore, lower credit scores could point to risky and irresponsible behavior, translating into substantially higher rates. Some states have decided that this is not a valid argument and actually outlawed the practice. However the majority still permit credit scores to be used, with Michigan's State Supreme Court overturning the 2005 law that made the practice illegal.
You have to wonder how the courts might feel about insurance rates based on astrological signs.
Ever curious about new ways understand the risks within each and every customer, Allstate Insurance has apparently investigated the driving habits of people and how they line up with a person's astrological sign. From the data considered, Allstate noted that Scorpios were only involved in 1.5% of all automobile accidents while Virgos are on the other end of the spectrum. Drivers born between August 23rd and September 22nd are 700% more likely to get in a wreck than those born under the sign of the scorpion. If you are wondering about the entire Zodiac Safety rating, this is what we learned from the Allstate study.
Allstate said Ophiuchus, the "new" sign added in the revised calendar, was the second-safest sign for motorists, followed by Cancer, Aquarius, Libra, Aries, Capricorn, Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces, Taurus, Leo, and Virgo.
