Worst drivers: Teens, doctors, lawyers
Medical doctors rank second in accident rates.
According to data from Quality Planning Corporation, a San Francisco-based company that helps insurance companies rate driver risk, attorneys, architects and real estate agents round out the top five most crash-prone occupations.
Long hours, especially for doctors in the training phase of their careers, may contribute to the higher accident rate for physicians, said a spokesperson for the American Medical Association.
Heavy cell-phone use, a common factor among doctors, lawyers and real estate agents, might also contribute, said the spokesperson.
