Sad that we have to suck it up because of the dishonesty and irresponsibility of others, huh?
I have a friend who's worked for decades for an insurance co. and I could tell ya stories!
She says some parents argue with her that their spoiled kids need to use the car, but the kid's poor driving record has driven up their rates into the 10's of thousands of dollars, and that's no exaggeration! The parents are willing to pay to keep these maniacs on the road.
I also heard from 3 separate sources that car driver examiners often accept bribes of a couple of $100 in exchange for a "Pass" on a driver's test.
And even though it is now illegal to chat or text on a cellphone while driving, I still see plenty of drivers do it.
But, how does one control this?!!
From what I see on the roads, it pays to have yourself covered.
