Data show how car brand affects speeding

  • October 3, 2016

New research by Admiral, a British insurer, based on data from some 300,000 event data recorders (EDRs) has revealed differences in the likelihood of speeding between drivers of different brands of car.

BMW and Audi models featured prominently high up on the list of speeders, while at the other end of the spectrum, Skoda cars were found most frequently in the bottom 10%.

Several UK insurers offer a discount to drivers who are willing to have an EDR fitted in their car. Drivers can then keep track of their driving score, and benefit from reduced premiums in subsequent years for careful driving.
