A Moray town has the top number of motorists with a private number plates in the UK, conferring to a new survey.
More than a quarter of the drivers in the town have a private number plate, while Turriff and Fraserburgh are also near the top of the table, gathered together by insurance providers Admiral.
The report showed 26% of the town’s population had their own plate, trailed by 25% of motorists in both Turriff and Fraserburgh.
About 23% of motorists in Westhill, Aberdeen and Wick had a private number plate in the past, compared to only 1.9% in Cambridge and 2% in Shetland.
Maybe predictably, oil workers, property designers, landowners and sub-postmasters were amongst the folks most likely to have a private number plate.
The report, built on data gathered from three million customers, also discovered that those who steered “prestigious brands” like the Bentleys, Porsches and Range Rovers were much more likely to have their own private plate too.
Justin Beddows, a spokesman for Admiral Insurance said: “The list of top 20 jobs is led by self-employed jobs.
“For some of these maybe the status a private plate confers is important to them. The professions at the bottom of the list really are a mixed bag with reporters, physicists and environmentalists. Maybe people in these roles are less awe-struck by them and prefer the obscurity a regular number plate offers.”
