Road crash variations 'a mystery'
Scottish drivers seem the most likely in the UK to hit lamp posts, according to accident figures.
Motorists from Paisley in Scotland followed by those from the Scottish destinations of Aberdeen, Motherwell and Glasgow make the most claims for striking lamp posts, said insurance company Admiral.
Motherwell drivers also topped the list for car park collisions in tables compiled from 1.3 million claims over the last five years.
Based on balancing the number of claims against the number of customers in each area, the tables also showed that motorists from Romford in east London made the most claims for rear-end bumps as well as the second most claims for car park collisions.
Top traffic light collision claim area was Liverpool, while drivers in Torquay in Devon had the most narrow-lane collision claims.
Tonbridge in Kent saw the most the car-hit-tree claims, while north-west London drivers made the most claims for having their vehicle hit while it was parked.
Admiral's acting managing director Dave Halliday said: "The results in Scotland and north-west England were a little surprising.
"It's a real mystery why Scottish motorists are more likely to hit a lamp post and why those in Liverpool and Manchester are more likely to have a bump at traffic lights."
