Could Rising Car Costs Mean More Crashes?

Published: July 23, 2019 067 4:06 am


Buying a car costs money – lots of money. Once you finally purchase a car, the rising cost of car insurance may be enough to keep that car off the road for a long time. As a result, new drivers are waiting too long to hit the road after passing their driving test. This means that by the time they do finally start driving, many of them don’t remember the basic rules of the road. Even worse, this can lead to an increased risk of being injured in a serious accident. This begs the question: could rising car costs mean more crashes?

According to a new study, more than a quarter of young drivers believe that their accident was a direct result of spending too much time away from driving after initially passing their driver’s test. In fact, more than 25% of young drivers under the age of thirty years old have spent six months or longer without driving. This time off is having a significant impact on their confidence behind the wheel and their ability to avoid an accident. 

While this study was conducted in the UK, young teen drivers here in the U.S. are feeling the pinch of car costs as well. In Colorado, the average cost to insure a car with basic liability protection was $1,359 a year or $113 a month. Denver is the most expensive city in Colorado to purchase car insurance with an average cost that is 29% higher than the rest of the state. Here, drivers pay an average of $1,758 a year for car insurance. 

Since car insurance in Denver can be costly, young drivers may opt out of driving altogether for a few months. This inexperience can make them more dangerous on the road when they finally do start driving. In addition to delayed driving, rising auto insurance costs increases the number of uninsured drivers on the road. It is estimated that at least 13% of drivers on the road are uninsured motorists.

I have worked with Greg Gold and his attorneys on a number of personal injury cases for our clients. His law firm is very creative and extremely talented. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with a car accident, insurance dispute, or catastrophic injury claim.

Jessica Yates -


The Gold Law Firm and Greg took on my unique case when no one else would. They were amazing through the whole process. Making sure we clearly understood everything. Always taking extra time to answer all our questions. In the end we got justice! I just learned that now they have a special victims unit, and it warms my heart to know that someone is there for those unique victims.

Janet Christensen -


This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!

Cannot speak highly enough about the Gold Law Firm. My case was turned over to them when the original firm and the insurance firm reached an impasse. Michael took on the case and stuck with it until an additional settlement was reached. My children have a stress free start in life thanks to the efforts of the Gold Law Firm.
