MALE DRIVERS MORE LIKELY TO FILE FALSE INSURANCE CLAIMS
A new survey has found that male motorists are more likely to make false claims on their insurance than women. The survey found that 14 percent of men would consider making a fake claim – compared to 10 percent of women. And, when it came to insurance claims for stolen cars, 19 percent of guys would keep the fact that they did not lock their car a secret, with many worried the information would void their claim.

SHOCKER! LIVING NEAR BARS ENCOURAGES PEOPLE TO DRINK MORE
According to a new study out of Finland, living near a bar encourages people to drink more.
Researchers actually tracked nearly 55,000 adults for seven years and found that those who moved closer to bars were somewhat more likely to increase their drinking.
For example, when a person moved about half a mile closer to a bar, their odds of becoming a heavy drinker rose 17 percent. And, it didn’t matter if a person moved into a neighborhood – or the bar moved into the neighborhood. Either way, living closer to a bar got people drinking more. (Reuters)
