One in three women will go uninsured over hikes

A third of young female motorists said they would consider driving without insurance if their premiums are hiked following a recent ruling by the European Court, a survey suggested.

Around 35% of women aged between 17 and 24 said they would consider driving uninsured if they faced a serious increase in the cost of cover, according to Irish insurer Quinn-direct. Furthermore, 12% of young women drivers said they would be forced to give up driving altogether if their premiums rose by 25%, the survey reports.
