Paying penalty for life in the fast lane

    Working in social care increases your chance of receiving a
    speeding ticket, research reveals.

    The survey, commissioned by insurance company Isle of Man
    Assurance, places a career in social services in the top 10
    occupations of UK motorists most likely to be caught by speed

    The study blames a “personality disposition” among social
    services staff for their high ranking.

    It claims an estimated 70 per cent of social workers have
    “A-type psychological profiles”, meaning they are prone to be
    rushed, impatient and perfection seeking.  This may make them
    suited to their job, but it also makes them likely to join the
    300,000 motorits currently banned for speeding offences.
