... or snow tyres' rumors?
Last weekend's best joke!
Some motorists who fit winter tyres to their car to cope with snow are being charged higher insurance premiums, it has been claimed.AA Insurance Services says some people have been told to pay up to 20% more.
Winter tyres should be much safer in the snow, but some insurers have been counting them as a modification to the manufacturer's specifications.
I find it very funny (at times) to watch the UK's desperate need to be different than all the others, at least invent any possible wheel again but name it differently even for technologies and products that have been around for long and can hardly be improved by making them British!?
This is all far from being efficient and living an intelligent and sustainable life.
"The confusion may be through call centres, where that information is not getting through," says Malcolm Tarling, of the ABI.
Oh well, "... not getting through" what?
