More of that proof that we’re being ripped off. As if we didn’t know it already. Taken from today’s Irish Examiner opinion section;

I LIVE in California where the motoring world is a very fast jungle.

I have had no speeding tickets in three years.

I only pay $200 a year for each of my vehicles, a 1970 Volkswagen pop-top Housekamper, and a small 1989 Honda Civic. Unlike Ireland, as my cars grow older, the insurance costs go down.

I have no clue as to why Ireland has such outrageous premiums, especially for older cars that are not vintage.

I wouldnt mind paying 200 to insure my bike for a year.
