If there are two cars and one under-25 driver, only one car would be assessed the increased premium A late-model full-sized car in the Vancouver area, used for pleasure, costs about less to insure when no under 25 occasional drivers are involved, the spokesman said OTHER REDUCTIONS Rate reductions of about 60 per cent now nave been given to taxis based in the Squamish, Pemberton, Surrey, Delta, White Rock, Cloverdale and Langley areas, near Vancouver, but which are not licensed to operate in Vancouver, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody. The spokesman said this is because they operate in lighter traffic. The spokesman said premiums for insurance associated with dealer plates and garage policies are being reduced by 20 per cent for liability cover and 55 to 60 per cent for collision and comprehensive coverage The spokesman said the reductions were a result of an intensive review of the government auto insurance plan, which begins March 1.
