Younger drivers can reduce their car insurance premiums by adopting new technology, an expert has insisted.
According to Graeme Trudgill, head of corporate affairs at the British Insurance Brokers' Association (Biba), people in lower age brackets face higher charges for their cover than their older counterparts because they are significantly more likely to be involved in an accident.
Meanwhile, the average claim cost of younger motorists is also markedly more than that put forward by more experienced individuals due to the fact they generally have newer and more expensive vehicles.
However, Mr Trudgill explained that adopting measures such as installing the new innovative black box technology is one way of restricting costs, as this monitors driving performance.
The Biba official noted this device "records your mileage, where you drive, how many miles you do" and can therefore provide feedback to the motorist on how they can make their driving style and habits safer.
