They sure do!Glad all that safety stuff worked and he's ok.
Yes, GTIs encourage impetuous driving behavior.
Police estimated speed on impact was 35 MPH and yes, vehicles can be replaced.Must've been a lower speed impact.
Glad everyone is OK. Vehicles can be replaced.
Hopefully your 17 yr old has gotten it "out of his system" and won't have any more wrecks.
Sounds about right for the UK, to be fair pretty much the entire country is overflowing with cars so part of it will be pricing people off the roads. I wish we had the same rates for the price of fuel too although many places have hit an all time low of £1.12 a litre at the moment, no doubt it wont last.It appears the insurance companies in the U.K. are keeping the teens (and others on the road) safe by charging so much to insure young drivers. Here in our state, insurance companies are by law not allowed to charge more for younger drivers even though they cost more to insure. After filing a claim or two, rates will defiantly go up. We have accident forgiveness which I will take advantage of and hopefully our son will keep from getting into another accident. For the time being, he is only allowed to drive to school, work and practice.
