High insurance prices affecting young drivers

The AA says just because we’ve got used to high insurance prices, doesn’t make them acceptable.

It’s warning the Government that it needs to take action to help young drivers.

It’s after a survey found that most people believe insurance costs are driving them off the roads.

Leitrim Sinn Fein Councoillor Padraig Fallon has been vocal on the issue over the past two years, he says he is aware of cases where young drivers had to cease part-time employment as a result of high motor insurances costs.
