Winter Claims

Article from Thursday - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/8559965.stm

Insurers received 335,000 claims, paying out 650 million pounds to drivers because of our lovely winter weather.

That's 650 million between the 18th December and the 13th January, how much per day?

And people wonder why insurance is so much!

The IT engineer, who has completed an advanced driving test, said he was travelling at 15mph when he lost control of his van which slid off the road and hit a small wall.
He was disappointed that he could not claim against the local authority which he believed had not done enough to grit the roads.
"I have not had an accident for a lot of years, but now this is a black mark against my name," he said, fearing a rise in premiums.
