Car Insurance Claims Surge 50% As Drivers Battle Snow And Ice

 Tuesday, December 12, 2017


Businesses suffered a 50 per cent increase in motor insurance claims over the weekend as snow blanketed large parts of the UK forcing drivers to contest with poor visibility and icy roads.

Figures from the Co-op also show that accidents and collisions increased by 42 per cent on Sunday when compared to the Sunday of the previous week.

“As this cold and icy weather is set to continue we’re urging drivers to take extra care by allowing additional time for journeys and checking car lights and tyres before setting off,” said Nick Ansley, head of motor insurance at the Co-op.
