A regular visitor to the Arrive Alive road safety website emailed 2 images of a Smart Car – with 2 seperate messages!
Photo 1: A new vehicle with a beautiful background and the message:
“Save Money and the Environment – Drive a Smart Car!”
Photo 2: An horrific accident scene near New Orleans involving two trucks and a “Smart Car”.
The message attached to this photo reads “F**k the environment”.
There can be now doubt that few vehicles would have been safe in such an accident – and even though we doubt whether anyone would have survived in another vehicle, it does beg the question what the relationship might be between safety and savings on car insurance?
The vehicle that you drive is a contributing factor to the car insurance premium payable – but there are also other factors to consider. You can still save on car insurance without reducing the size of your vehicle – You need not compromise safety to save on car insurance!
The distance that you travel is one of the most important factors in calculating the risk of road accidents. Pay As You Drive [PAYD] car insurance or Distance Based car insurance is one of the best ways to ensure that you pay only for the kilometres that you drive.
Even by driving a bigger car – and paying according to the distance that you drive – you might still pay less for car insurance than the oke with a smaller car who pays insurance irrespective of the distance that he drives!
