Logic in charging for no-fault insurance flawed

IT would be easy to support various correspondents’ calls for “no fault” insurance to be paid through drivers’ licences rather than through vehicles’ licences, as the present logic seems flawed.

People who do not pay any vehicle licence form part of the risk matrix but get off scot-free, while a farmer might be slugged for 10 payments despite being seldom on the road and not having more than three vehicles concurrently upon the road.

I know a bloke who has seven collectable cars but can drive only one at a time. I know a woman who has a Prius and an Audi but can drive only one at a time.

There is no appropriate balance with the heavy lifting associated with the new insurance.

Perhaps the correct balance would be to charge the $99 only on company vehicles and have the balance paid through drivers’ licences.
