I would like to continue the insurance debate that started in fiona's thread but with a different view- does anyone have any idea of the statistics of accidents that are caused by older drivers! I was unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident on tuesday afternoon when an eldery gentleman pulled out into me (god knows what he was thinking) in the middle of the dual carriageway sending me hurtling into the crash barrier. (very scary but thank god i managed to keep my car on the road) I may only be 19, and supposedly classed as the dangerous driver, but the accident wasnt my fault, and after some nearby highwaymen pulled me out of my car and got me to the side of the road the git drove off so i couldnt get his details. Grrrrr!! I was so annoyed! (and a little shaken!) I spent two hours with the nice police man and the highway men looked after me but quite frankly the whole thing has been a pain in the neck (LITERALLY- whip lash!) and now its looking like my car is probably going to be a write off By nightime the police phoned me to say the man that did it had reported himself to the police station but do you think that warrents driving away from the scene of an accident?! I would like to make a stand on behalf of all the young drivers who aren't actually wreckless little things that cause insurance premiems to rise against elderly drivers who seem to drive more dangerously than young people. Once again. Grrrr! Anyone else been in a similar position or have any views on old drivers?! Rant over. (for now!) PS- Fi- try and get fully comp insurance if you can!
