Re: ICBC Rate Hike Reflects Continually Bad Driving Habits, Nov. 25 Kelowna Capital News.
I’m hoping Capital News made some revenue from this column. It is very obviously very, very self-serving, with Mr. Hergott being an injury lawyer and all.
He does make some good points, about our lackadaisical attitudes towards road safety and our poor driving habits.
However, he then switches to “soft tissue injuries” and the low attention or compensation paid out for these alleged injuries. The cost of our insurance premiums consistently increase dramatically because of people getting large settlements — the larger the settlement the more money lawyers make.
