Cost of car insurance for young drivers on the rise
- Interesting, this piece:
"The number of claims is increasing and the number of passengers involved is increasing," said Mr Douglas, of the AA.
This suggests carpooling is on the rise, although there could be many explanations. Perhaps there's a feedback effect here; higher rates due to carpooling (with more at risk in a collision) lead to more carpooling -- a feedback effect supporting fewer cars on the road (and one hopes, safer driving). One ponders what the roles of carsharing and the soft modes may be in this equation, and whether there's an upside to higher medical expenses.
Funny (morbidly so) that the "daylight robbery" perspective repeatedly compares the price of the car to the cost of insurance as evidence of the injustice of higher premiums. As if a cheaper gun kills in a less harmful way. Wait 'til they hear about the true cost of gasoline.
