A Kerry TD is suggesting a night time curfew for new drivers to deal with spiralling insurance costs.
Sinn Féin Deputy Martin Ferris says it could be based on a UK model, where young motorists are kept off the road at night.
He says this could be one way of reducing the high cost of car insurance.
Insurance Ireland’s non-life insurance manager, Michael Horan says 60 per cent of compensation claims are down to legal fees for solicitors, which the Injuries Board was set up to operate without.
He’s also rejecting the assertion that insurers aren’t giving enough information to the Injuries Board so they can independently assess why claims are going up.
