If you were asked what a dog groomer, a coach, and an attorney have in common, you might be hard pressed to come up with an answer. However, according to a recently releasesd report, these people share the dubious distinction of being among the Top 10 Most Dangerous Drivers by Profession. Ouch.

According to the the report on Insurance.com, 44 percent of attorneys who received a car insurance comparison quote through the Insurance.com web site, had previously made an accident claim. The report's findings were based on accident claims as a percentage of quotes issued.

At the other end of the scale, The least accident-prone drivers were Athletes, at 17 percent, and homemakers, at 24 percent. "Professions that demand multi-tasking – being on the phone, moving fast on a tight schedule – are prone to more distractions and, from there, more accidents," commented Sam Belden, Insurance.com VP.

"Though the job of a homemaker demands multi-tasking, young children are along for any car ride. When children are involved, people tend to take their time and use greater caution." Homemakers and athletes may also tend to be off the road during rush hours. The veracity of the data is difficult to challenge, given that it came directly from the drivers themselves. When you sort it all out, the list of drivers you don't want to be around looks like this.

1. Attorney/Judge

2. Financial professionals

3. Government worker (GS6)

4. Bartender or Waiter

5. Professional, Other

6. Dog Groomer

7. Marketing/Advertising

8. Barber/Stylist

9. Coach

10. Nurse

While it is always a good practice to shop around for the best insurance rates and coverage, if your occupation is listed above, chances are good that you'll need to shop a little harder.
