Motorcyclists Safer - John Lucas
Motorcyclists are 23% safer behind the wheel of a car than non-motorcyclists, according to a leading British insurer. Equity Red Star compared car drivers to car users who ALSO have an insured motorcycle, and found the latter 23% less likely on average to make a claim on their car policy. So, on that basis, should motorcyclists pay less for their vehicle insurance than the rest of us? John Lucas is a motor vehicle insurance expert with the Insurance Council of New Zealand.
