Faced with rising fuel prices and the ongoing inflation crisis, all savings are good to take but can sometimes be risky. As indicated by a survey conducted by the online insurer Leocare that RTL was able to consult, more than one in four French people (27%) with a car say they are ready to no longer pay car insurance.

A figure that increases considerably among young motorists, aged under 35, 40% of whom are thinking about doing without car insurance. Moreover, this study underlines that only one out of five motorists over the age of 50 say they are ready not to subscribe to it. As our colleagues remind us, driving on the roads without being insured is an offense that can be punished with a maximum fine of 3,750 euros.

Currently, more than 800,000 French people drive without insurance. A trend that can be explained above all by the constant price increases inflicted by the sector on consumers. According to Christophe Dandois, who heads the insurer Leocare, this price explosion is also here to stay. “For next year, in view of the evolution of the price of raw materials, repair costs, the expected increase is between 4 and 6%”, he predicts. A situation that could lead other drivers to do without insurance.
