While these proposed safety standards may be frustrating for younger drivers, they could benefit from much cheaper car insurance premiums which would be a relief for many.
(PRWEB UK) 7 March 2013
The Association of British Insurers has called for new safety standards to be introduced to lower insurance premiums and road deaths for young drivers, reports the BBC.
The ABI wants to see a one year minimum learning period for young drivers, a limit to the number of passengers a newly qualified young driver can carry, restrictions for driving in the dark for those that have recently passed and as well as zero tolerance for blood alcohol levels.
They say that young drivers could save 20% on insurance premiums and a saving of up to £370 a year if the government introduced new safety standards.
A spokesperson for Cost.co.uk:
“While these proposed safety standards may be frustrating for younger drivers, they could benefit from much cheaper car insurance premiums which would be a relief for many. Young people face high car insurance premiums because the statistics are against them and many new young drivers are at a significantly higher risk of a serious crash.
“While it may be a while before these measures are introduced, young drivers can search for budget car insurance by comparing deals at Cost.”
