Where's the fairness? Why the discrimination?Just because some
poor uneducated person gets into more accidents, why should they be punished for
failing to be good drivers? We need a federal program to make the
evil, rich, educated, safer drivers "pay their fair share," right?Or, maybe this is just proof that people who work hard, get a good
education, and obey the rules (including traffic laws and common sense) take
fewer risks and have fewer accidents and should be rewarded.
I'm down with that, I just wish they would take my perfect record more into
consideration. I think the single, highest factor, regardless of who/what etc
should be driving record# of accidents and penalties/years of
wish my rates were lower...and I'm college educated and have had zero
incidents (tickets or accidents) in 25 years of driving. It's still a sham
Are white-collar, educated professionals less likely to get in an accident than
blue-collar workers with a high school education? If so, then if you want lower
insurance rates, then get an education and a good job. People who live in some
states must pay higher rates because there are more accidents in those states.
Is that fair? It is if you are insuring people and want to stay in business.
