Study from San Francisco Firm Shows Hybrid Drivers Violate Laws and Crash More Than Average Drivers

San Francisco’s very own “auto insurance analytics company” down there at 388 Market Street, Quality Planning, thinks you drivers of gas-electric hybrid vehicles have issues. They’re saying stuff like, ”Hybrid drivers show shameful lack of social responsibility.”

Harsh.

Try this on for size:

“Studies by auto insurance analytics company Quality Planning, collision publication “Mitchell Industry Trends Report” and the Highway Data Loss Institute found that:

Hybrid owners drive 25 percent more miles than owners of gas-powered cars.

Hybrid owners receive almost two-thirds more traffic citations per mile than their all-gas counterparts.

Hybrids are involved in more collisions than non-hybrids

Who knew the Toyota Prius can be as dangerous as its design inspiration, the deadly triggerfish?

Check out that article and see what you think. (And try not to chuckle when you read the Honda CBR rider’s comment about Priuseses…)
