Saga Motor Insurance has reported that insurance claims by over 50s drivers are actually down 17% this December, compared with the same time last year.

The firm has concluded that older motorists are heeding warnings to stay off the roads as Britain freezes, given that AA statistics show that motorists in general are making twice as many claims as normal, due to the bad weather.

Saga’s director general, Ros Altmann, comments: “It is really encouraging that older motorists are using their experience and planning around the bad weather to ensure they are not out on the roads in the ice and snow.”

According to the AA, motor insurance claims doubled recently, with 71% of customers saying that the slippery conditions contributed to their accident.
