If you’re the type of driver who can’t stop getting into fender-benders or racking up speeding tickets, cheer up; your bad driving may not be your fault.

According to a new study, up to 30 percent of the population may be genetically inclined to drive badly. Researchers tested a small group of volunteers on a driving-simulator and found that people with the specific variant gene tended to do worse than those without the gene.

There may be good news though for bad drivers: the same gene can help slow the degenerative effects of several diseases, including multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s. (Newser)
