Study Shows Chevy Corvette Drivers Among Safest

Corvette convertible drivers among the safest, study shows

We all know Chevy Corvette drivers are passionate about their cars. One clear indication of this is how safe they are when it comes to their driving – well, some may call it more “protective” than safe, but you get the idea.

A study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has shown that the Chevy Corvette Z06 and Corvette Convertible have the lowest insurance claims in the nation for claims due to physical damage to other vehicle and property. Which basically means that Corvette drivers hit things less often than any other drivers on the road. The figures are adjusted to account for how many of the vehicles are on the roadways, so these numbers aren’t simply because Corvettes are more rare than the average sedan.

This shouldn’t be surprising to Vette owners out there. After all, despite the fact that we’re driving around America’s favorite sports car with tons of horsepower, we still make sure we park our Chevy Corvette far away from any other car in the parking lot. In fact, many of us only take ours out of the garage on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

For all the websites out there that dedicate themselves to posting tons of pictures of wrecked Corvettes, let this new study make it clear that Corvette owners know how to treat their cars better than anyone else on the road. And that means not running into stuff.

You can check out the full study here.
