Suspended drivers’ licences could be an advantage for motorists
Andiswa Mkosi 30 May 2012
The call by the Road Traffic Management Corporation to suspend drivers’ licences of motorists convicted of certain traffic offices could end up lowering insurance premiums for South African motorists.
This is according to Christelle Fourie, Managing Director of MUA Insurance Acceptances.
Fourie says that fewer accidents caused by offences like speeding and reckless driving could ultimately benefit consumers in the future through lower insurance premiums.
She warns drivers that if they continue driving with a suspended licence their motor insurance cover becomes invalid.
