DRAGONS, TIGERS and monkeys are leaving a trail of destruction across the country, according to CGU Insurance

A survey conducted by the insurance giant's 24-hour helpline for the start of the Chinese New Year reveals that people born in the year of the monkey appear to be the worst drivers, while rats have the most mishaps in the home.

The poll, taken from a sample of the 49,000 calls the helpline handles each month, highlights the widely differing claims from people born under each of the 12 ancient Chinese signs of the zodiac.

Apparently monkeys are three times more likely to have a motor claim than roadwise dragons, says CGU.
