Public consultation on automobile insurance plan to proceed
Quebec, Quebec – CAA-Quebec has announced that it is pleased with the decision by the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) to proceed with a public consultation on Quebec’s public automobile insurance plan. Although the association says it is not surprised by the possible increase in insurance contributions, given that the last increase was more than twelve years ago, CAA-Quebec believes it must be implemented fairly, and that the insurance bill must be simpler and more transparent for motorists.
CAA-Quebec will participate in the consultation and will promote its position on several major proposals presented in the documentation, which was made public on February 28.
To make things less confusing, CAA-Quebec suggests that the insurance premium be billed separately from fees related to vehicle registration and the driver’s license.
