Good drivers 'might be rewarded'

Car insurance customers who travel within the speed limit and do not receive any penalties for bad driving may soon be rewarded with discounts to registration and licensing fees.

Transport minister Annastacia Palaszczuk stated yesterday that the scheme is being investigated by the government, reports the Courier Mail.

Drivers under the age of 25 who do not break the law within the first three years of owning a license could benefit from the initiative.

However, people who have been driving for longer could also find they are rewarded with discounts when they go to renew their license.

In the meantime, those who want to reduce the cost of running their vehicle might want to consider heading online to compare car insurance quotes.

Earlier this month, Alan Pears said in an article for the Sydney Morning Herald that another way drivers could minimise the amount they spend on running their motor could be to invest in a new machine, because these tend to use less fuel than older models.
