Online petition to protest over rising cost of car insurance in Yorkshire

An online petition set up by a Yorkshire MP is calling for a reduction in the huge car insurance premiums being quoted to drivers in the area, and young drivers especially, after one 20-year-old driver in the Bradford East area received a quote of £50,000 for an annual car insurance policy. The online petition has been launched by the MP for Bradford East, David Ward, whose constituency sees some the highest car insurance rates in the country. The issue of rising car insurance costs isn’t just isolated to young drivers either as the MP has described instances in which drivers with a 30 year driving history with no claims have struggled to find affordable cover simply because of where they live. David Ward has described being inundated with complaints from his constituents over the spiralling cost of car insurance in the Bradford area. A rise in the number of fraudulent claims and crash for cash scams in this area of Yorkshire has been blamed for the increase in the cost of cover for responsible drivers. For MP David Ward, something had to be done, and so the online petition has been established. So far the petition protesting over inflated car insurance quotes has gathered over 150 signatures. The MP plans to present the petition to the Department of Transport and is also considering raising the issue in the House of Commons.
