Driv­ers from Wat­ford have most prangs

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Watts The Goss - BY STIAN ALEXAN­DER

PEO­PLE from Wat­ford have the worst record for road ac­ci­dents in the UK, says a sur­vey.

Just un­der 27,000 from the Hert­ford­shire town have been in a crash since 2013 – more than a fifth of the pop­u­la­tion.

Nearby Hemel Hemp­stead was close be­hind, with 21 prangs per 100 res­i­dents.

Driv­ers from Swansea, South Wales, ex­pe­ri­enced the most road rage, with 69 per cent en­coun­ter­ing it, com­pared to just 29 per cent in Aberys­t­wyth.

MoneySu­perMar­ket an­a­lysed data from car in­sur­ance buy­ers. Its spokesman Tom Flack said: “In ar­eas where road rage and car ac­ci­dents are com­mon, pre­mi­ums can be higher so shop­ping around is im­per­a­tive.”
