Older drivers safest in icy weather

  • 17% fewer insurance claims for over 50s this December

Insurance claims by over 50s drivers are actually DOWN 17% this December, compared with the same time last year, Saga Motor Insurance can reveal.

It seems that older motorists are heeding the warnings to stay off the roads in bad weather. As AA statistics show that motorists in general are making twice as many claims as normal due to the bad weather, this must be younger drivers, because Saga's experience shows that older motorists are having fewer accidents this year.

Saga Director-General Ros Altmann commented: β€œIt is really encouraging that older motorists are using their experience and planning around the bad weather to ensure they are not out on the roads in the ice and snow.”
