If a car rolls down the (very teeny) hill into my car, parked innocently outside my house, rendering apparently £1058 worth of damage to their insurance company... why the hell should it affect my premium?? I've just gone for a renewal and it's rocketed sky high - because if this they said. And the teeny hill is now obsolete as I've moved house!

Could it be partly because they are not allowed to reduce premiums for females any more?

The statistics show people who have accidents are more likely, even if not your fault the first time

What Carole said. I had some absolute arse twat of a man go in the back of me and my premium rose. I asked why and she said 'if you have a crash, you are statistically more likely to have a crash within the next three years, regardless of blame. shock

She being the insurance person.
