Also, you can't assume that every 17 year old lad is a massive bell end and will crash his car within hours of buying it.
I've seen quite a few women struggle with the basics of driving and there's also a large number of women that routinely drive dangerously.
Maybe, the decision should be taken on the number of attempts you take to pass your test, plus a basic report from the examiner that either states you passed with flying colours (and get lower insurance) or that you're an average/poor driver (higher insurance).
Quite right. This issue has infuriated me to the point I really feel I am mentally unable to put together something that voices what I truly feel inside about this outrageous violation.
This is the 21st Century. A supposedly uber modern and advanced society. And we still have such frankly, primative and archaic ways of treating people in a harmful way such as prejudice. Something this century was meant to have seem stamped out long ago. And what is more, prejudice formed not by a social group but an entire industry sector. Insurance companies.
How can they do this so brazently and blatantly? How can insurance firms blatanly and brazenly make such unfounded and unfair assuptions about all men based on the lawless and reckless percentage?
It isn't sexism that is the key reason why male drivers are suffering greatly financially. They aren't being forced to pay more just because they are men. Surely insurance companies are forcing men to pay more, not because of women, but other men. Those men that give substance to the stat that they go on, that the percentage of men who are involved in accidents caused by themselves may well be more than that of women who are involved in accidents caused by themselves.
