The Bill Is In The Mail..
The owners of motor bikes will not escape from it. The increases in premiums of insurance required by the SAAQ were approved and published in the official Gazette of Quebec of last 8 June.
The new "contribution of insurance" will prevail until 2010. This one will pass from 561.66 $ to 904.87 $ in 2009 and 1253 $ in 2010 for the motor bikes of more than 400 cc.
The tariff grid, very sophisticated, envisages variable annual rates for the motor bikes of 125 cc or less; from 125 cc with 400 cc and more than 400 cc. The premiums will also vary according to the total of the points of inaptitude accumulated by each driver of vehicle motorized, according to the class of the licence. The "contribution", according to the officialese, will vary thus from 34,78 $ to 405,84 $.
New particular premiums will be also imposed in more to the holders of licences which were seen imposing suspensions or revocations of licence during five years previous. These contributions of insurance will vary from 275 $ to 367 $.
The applicants of licence of apprentice-driver must also expect to spend more. The increases will still vary according to classes' of licence. The rates will evolve/move of 20,07 $ to 61,80 $.
It acts of a first step in the direction of the establishment of "personalized" premiums known as, according to the personal file of each driver.
The publication of these réglements in the official Gazette means that the file is now closed and that political pressures will not be able to reverse these decisions. The president of the SAAQ, John Harbour, on the other hand engaged a few days ago, during an interview with the Newspaper of Quebec, to seek with associations of motorcylcists a formula of tariffing which would also take into account the age of the motorcylcist, his experiment and the type of machine of which he is owner.
