Don’t lump all drivers into box based on age

The article on car insurance rate factors was very interesting to me. I have never received a ticket, never caused an accident and don’t text or use the cellphone. I drive about 3,000 miles a year and own a 3-year-old car in excellent condition. I don’t play loud music, and rarely have a passenger. I am in very good health and have my eyes examined every year. I drive at the speed limit and don’t tailgate.

However, this year I received a birthday gift from my insurance carrier when I turned 85. I’m now on a chart with everyone else. I’ve been paying premiums for 62 years. I don’t appreciate being put in a box with everyone else.
