A recent market analysis carried out by Moneysupermarket.com has revealed that Crewe has the most drink drivers in the UK. The Cheshire town had the highest number of motorists searching for insurance for convicted drink drivers.

After an analysis into car insurance applications, Crewe in South Cheshire has been named as the place with the highest percentage of convicted drink drivers.

By looking at over 11 million car insurance quotes over the last year, Moneysupermarket.com have revealed that Crewe has the highest proportion of drives that needed to arrange convicted driver insurance with drink driving convictions.

An astonishing 1.74% of people from the small town declared that they had a drink driving or drug driving conviction when applying for car insurance.

Welsh residents came a close second with postcodes in Wales ranking 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th for drink driving convictions.

At the opposite end of the scale, the report has shown that motorists in London are least likely to be caught drink driving. The number of people in London looking for convicted driver insurance was much lower and only 0.12% of those getting a quotation in the WC postcode declared a drink driving offence.

Although the figures suggest that certain areas have more drink drivers than others, it could also be reasonable to believe that drink driving is policed better in some parts of the UK with certain Police forces carrying out campaigns to crack down on offenders.

Fortunately it appears that the number of drink driving convictions has fallen in 2015.

Kevin Pratt of Moneysupermarket.com said that from their research insurance for convicted drink drivers typically costs around £350 more than it does for somebody with no convictions.
