Saturday, October 10, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAtD Cost Of Auto Insurance Hurts Just Renter From Note On By JOHN BAKBOUR BOSTON (AP) The high cost of auto insurance is a true discomfort to many Americans who find themselves paying two or three times the cost of the family buggy each year for legal protection on the road. The situation is even worse for the youth under 25 who DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS A. HOSACK Certified Dental Mechanic National Store Bldg. PH. 327-7244 Lethbridge faces a annual insurance bill for his car, or for the man over 65 who may not be able to get insurance at all, and hence legally cannot drive. Every day, some per- sons are hurt on the road. Each year, more than die. For protection, the four out of every five families who own cars buy auto insurance. It costs them some million a year, only slightly under what they pay for new cars. Auto insurance itself is a tacit admission that driving is risky, even for the careful. But the form of auto insurance, is a Southminister Junior Girls' Choir Presents TTYI7 A" AN 'NGUSH JLUrjA COMEDY by OUSTAV HOtST An Operetta with a catl of 40 YATES MEMORIAL CENTRE SAT.

It is aimed at protecting the others he may jurt. As the price gets higher with each accident, legislators and lawyers are looking for a new protective philosophy of the road. Now, the U.S. government has undertaken the most compre- hensive look at auto safety and .nsurance ever attempted. And at least one s e 11 s -h a s taken legislative steps to overturn the old com- mon-law principle that the party at fault must pay the bills. In the end, only some 15 cents out of every insurance dollar joes to pay for the actual net economic loss of the victim, what he is really out of pocket. In a Massachusetts study of small claims, investigators found that insurance companies had paid out But of that amount, was for pain and suffering .and only was for real expenses of the victims. CITES OVERHEAD Still another study holds that in premiums must be paid for every dollar that goes to compensate victims. The over- head, says the study, is eaten up by insurance companies and legal fees, which generally work out to around one-third of the settlement. A U.S. transportation depart- ment study includes a volume on consumer attitudes toward the insurance they buy. 65 per they were sat- isfied with their current insur- ance. Some 22 per cent said they were not. Those who were satisfied sale generally that the insurance was protective. But those who were dissatisfied were quite specific, citing his costs, fear ffl cancellation and delays in pay: meat of claims. The survey group also was asked preferences for a "no- fault" system or the present "fault" system. Forty-four per cent responded favoring damages from their own insurance company am forfeiting ths right to "pain am suffering" damages, regardless of which party was to fault Thirty-six per cent said they preferred the current system. MANY SUFFER Compulsory auto insurance 1 far from a universal fact of life in the U.S. The result, says th study, is that almost half of the victims of serious accidents re- ceive no compensation eithe from the other driver's insur ance or from the driver hirnseU And a quarter of those whc suffer some personal injury an auto accident receive compensation from any source Professor Joseph W. Bisho Jr. of the Yale University lega department, writing on constitu jonal questions in the "no ault" system, said: "The high cost of liability in urance under the present sys- em means that it is out of of many persons, which means that some poor people, especially inhabitants of the nner city, are deprived of a neans of transportation which 'ould open up to them new and wtter employment opportuni- es. The present fault system is Iso blamed for overloading the ourt calendar with cases in rhich judges and juries are sked to assign negligence for le moment of the accident, toat moment is frequently two four years old when it arrives inally in court. In Massachusetts this year he result was a modified "no- ault" plan. It provided essen- ially that a driver would collecl lis net economic expenses in an ceident from his own insurance company up to a limit of teyond that, providing certain ther elements were met, he ould resort to the court anc ue the other driver or that river's insurance company for .'haetver other damages he felt ie was entitled to reap. Some form of no-fault legisla- tion is pending or in effect in several rtates and provinces Sometimes it is blended will merit provisions, as is (he Mas achusetts plan, in which those [rivers with marred records would pay higher premiums hose with safe records offered liscounts. This puts a degree of faul rack into the no-fault concept. Meanwhile, the U.S. govern merit's report on auto insur ance, conclusions expected in coming months, may do mucl ,0 overhaul the present Ameri can system. Inherent in it is th hreat of federal standards over which most of the state, and the -insurance companies would have little control. Named Sea Cade Of The Year OTTAWA (CP) M.
