The Pacific Highway in New South Wales has witnessed a particularly high number of serious car accidents in recent years, it has been claimed.

According to the Coffs Coast Advocate, there have been more than 900 Pacific Highway accidents in the last five years in the region, which "also take a toll on thousands of other people".

Indeed, Gary Farrugia, a worker at Jamon Music, which is located on the highway in Coffs Harbour, noted that he sees "about ten" emergency vehicles rushing past the shop to attend accidents every day.

Such news may interest motorists in the area who are looking to compare car insurance. Mr Farrugia told the newspaper of how he had recently experienced "enormous, slow-moving queues of giant trucks" after two fatal accidents had closed the highway for a total of ten hours.

Meanwhile, it was reported last week that Queensland motorists are set to witness a fall in the cost of compulsory third-party car insurance under new laws to come into effect on October 1st this year.
