Madness

BBC NEWS | Business | Per-mile cover ‘to cut accidents’
Charges for drivers aged 24 to 65 go as low as 1p a mile for off-peak motorway driving while under-23s will be charged up to £1 a mile when driving at night.

I hope that’s a typo—a pound a mile is absurd. Arbitrarily charging young men higher premiums because of the general statistical behaviour of that group is plain wrong. If certain individuals present a danger to other road users, they should be removed from the road.
