As all us motorists will know, insurance premiums have become almost entirely un-affordable. Massive compensation payouts and fraudulent claims, supported by a judicial system which makes it easier to pay out rather than fight the false claims, have resulted in insurance companies pushing the cost of premiums up massively.
Here at Ireland-underground.com, we are leading the fight against these extortionate premiums. We are collecting examples of over priced premiums, collating the results and will be bringing them before the relevant ministers. You can help by sending examples to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have already discussed the issue the Michael Healy-Rae TD who has sat before insurance companies in relation to this issue. From speaking with him, it is clear that fraudulent claims are the primary reason for the hike in costs. The cost of fighting fraudulent claims in court far outweighs the cost of simply paying out, so this is what the insurance companies are doing. We need to fight back against this, we need the court system to take a firmer stance on these claims, no more €30,000 payouts for "whiplash". We also need to fight against the insurance companies loading the additional cost on younger drivers. We are hard pressed enough as it is.
If we cannot get anything in motion from the political system, we will organise a mass demonstration in Dublin. We will bring thousands of cars along all the major roadways into Dublin and bring the city to a standstill.
This fight is just beginning, we will persevere, we will be heard, we will win!
