Click bait or some truth?

BS.

Insurance is a risk based business. Sure for the mainstream (and especially younger) car drivers the bigger insurance companies want to reduce their risk and will use technology as much as possible. I work for a company with a large fleet of vehicles and they already have tracking, behaviour monitoring, and front and internal facing cameras for insurance already. It's not 10 years it's here (basically an ODBC reader connected to a sim). Our staff get monthly reports on how they are driving. 

Now, lets be honest I don't think anybody here is in first flush of youth, and whilst we might drive our classic cars "enthusiastically", I don't think anybody is taking the risks they did when they were 19. We're probably a lower risk group than most. And regardless of what big insurers do, they will always be specialist insurers who will 'take the risk'.

I have to say I used to watch this channel when he was just trying to fix cars, but I unsubscribed when he tried to set himself up as a car reviewer similar to a poor mans Harry Metcalf.

No chance of this happening. The average UK car is 8.7 years, more than a year older than a decade ago. 8.4 million cars in the UK are more than 13 years old, having been on the road since 2010. They won't just disappear and the majority of their owners do not have the resources to change up. The rest simply don't want to.

Maybe not past it, but on the way past it.  It’s all that cake TB, not good for you….

So you're saying he's looking at his prime in the wing mirror, not the rear-view mirror ? 🤔  😆
