The problem with insurance

Driving home for lunch this afternoon on the Whitemud, I was passed by a red Chevy Blazer. Keep in mind that the speed limit is 80km/h, I was doing around 95 km/h, and the Blazer passed me like I was standing still. I don’t know for sure, but from what I hear the Blazer is not the safest SUV in the world. Especially not the way the driver was weaving in and out of traffic, not even bothering to signal. Now this might not sound that uncommon, given that it was on the Whitemud after all.

What gets me though, is that the driver of the Blazer was a twenty-something female. And on top of her speeding and weaving, she was talking on her cell phone. Her insurance is probably less than mine. There’s just something incredibly wrong with that.

  1. I agree with you. I think there needs to be another way to determine insurance besides basing it on age and gender. Like how about driving ability??
