Insurance companies,especially auto insurers,are the biggest extortionists

Shouldn't that be "Couldn't care less" ?

The idiom "could care less" is long-established as meaning "couldn't
care less". Odd, sure, but it's venerable.

I certainly don't want this to turn into an insurance thread but on
the subject of "extortionist" auto insurers....

some are, some aren't. I was *REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY* thankful
that I had insurance when some uninsured nut job whacked our car and
ran off.

Insurance is one of those things that you pay in the hopes that you
never need it but are glad it's there when you do.

I've found that those that complain the most about the cost of
insurance are usually the ones that need it the most. Or, at a
minimum, WE need it to protect ourselves from YOU.

<snip>

as long as you get the light fixed within the proper time frame
you will suffer no problems at all. IE:your insurance will not go up


BTW: I found out that even if you get a *real* ticket such as speeding
etc...
if you go to court and act polite...
chances are you will get it reduced slightly

Amen to that! My son got T-boned at an intersection by an uninsured,
speeding driver who ran a stop sign and totalled his Grand Am. I had a tree
fall on my van to the tune of 2 grand plus in a storm a while back. Glad I
had no deductible comprehensive, 'cuz money was pretty tight at the time.,
and then a few months after that, a deer attacked the van to the tune of
about 1800 bucks.

Around here, insurance is *required*. If they pull you over, you must show
proof of insurance, in addition to license and registration. No insurance,
they impound the car. They *do* check to see if the insurance is valid,
too. False insurance papers, off to the calaboose with you, same as phony
DL or registration.

I was acquainted with a fellow who said he didn't need insurance, because
he didn't really own anything, so how could they get anything. He had a
property damage accident in which he was at-fault. He's still paying a
sizeable portion of his income, and that was a few years ago. He carries
insurance now...

This depends on where in the world you live, but if it really concerns
you, call the phone number on the ticket and ask, but get the brake
light fixed ASAP.
