Why Have Car Insurance When It Has So Many Problems

Jul 19, 2008
The law requires car insurance so, as a licensed motorist, I have it and I pay for it as my policy requires. It's not cheap and I'm well aware of that since my kids have had several accidents. I guess that's one of insurance's downsides.

Providing your personal information to the insurance company is another. When you start getting multiple offers through the mail and on the phone, you realize your information has been sold; it's an irritating downside of any company that practices this.

If you're a good driver and have never had an accident, you might expect some benefit, right? It doesn't happen. Problem #3: Everybody continues to pay for insurance even if they've been driving for 30 or 40 years without a claim. It really isn't fair, but probably won't change.

Can you imagine how much profit the insurance companies made off these individuals? It's staggering. Of course, other drivers who had numerous or severe accidents eroded that profit for the insurance companies.

Having a policeman or insurance company determine you were at fault is also a problem since it's not always true. Only the people involved in an accident really know what happened. If you're unfortunate enough to have the other driver lie about it, it could raise your rates and cost you in higher premiums for many years.

One other small pitfall is dealing with the agent. They will be calling you to solicit more insurance, better coverage, other policies. Some of them will even offer money for names of your friends and family, so they can solicit them into new policies as well.

Keeping track of the insurance card can also be trying. A new one (or multiple copies of it) is issued every six months and they accumulate in the glove box with all the other \"necessities\" like tissues, the tire gauge, extra straws, etc. It's often embarrassing to have to sift through the mess in order to provide the officer (who just pulled you over) with the required information.

The biggest downside of all has to be the uninsured driver. Even if he sticks around after an accident, it probably won't be of much benefit. If he couldn't afford the insurance he probably can't afford to pay your deductible not to mention the costs of the accident if the car was damaged. It's an unfair result of illegal, uninsured motorists.
