Ways To Get Cheaper Car Insurance For Young Drivers

I could go on and on about the spin that you drones buy into but you will never put in the effort to find real facts... so i will just point out the easiest most obvious one.
Did anyone of you Obamacare supports ever look up what it would have cost to have a young adult at the age of 24 get insurance on their own (or parents paying out of their after tax paycheck)... IT WAS WAY CHEAPER than staying on their parents plan? hmmmm so why make Obamacare seem like a better option.

On a somewhat related note, I wish the Times or some other major news organization would do a deep dive into why truck drivers still are paid by the mile rather than on salary.

With telemetrics, GPS, instant communication with loading docks, weather info at everyone's fingertips, surely there are better ways to weed out inefficient or sandbagging drivers who lollygag on the clock. Pay per mile provides an incentive to focus on work but also far too great an incentive to push safety limits. We wouldn't need all of these convoluted "hours of service" rules etc. if drivers weren't punished for every minute they don't spend behind the wheel, pedal to the metal.

There really need to be hearings in which trucking company operators are asked to testify under oath about their compensation practices vis a vis safety.

One cannot help but wonder whether Mr. Douthat actually knows any young people. As Gen Xer who works closely with a lot of people 20 years younger, my observation is that the millennial generation is doing just fine. Yes, they have smartphones and are on Facebook, but they aren't obsessed with it. They seem more practical minded than my peers. They had much better parenting, from parents who were far less traumatized by their own parents. And many are concerned about the pressing problems of our time, because they know it is their own future which is in jeopardy, through no fault of their own.

At the same time, young is young. Are young people more self-obsessed? Yes. But this is nothing new, and time will cure it, as it always does. Remember the Me generation? The complaints about our own age group, and how apathetic, ironic and lazy we were? Each generation appalls the next with its apparently incomprehensible ways. That millennials are more empowered electronically will probably have the same ultimate effect as jazz babies smoking, drinking, showing off their legs and driving. And like all the others before them, time will grow them up and they will complain about their own children's ways.

But it IS legal.

And clearly, the working stiffs aren't working that hard...because their customers prefer Uber.

And unlike gypsy cabs, Uber isn't cheaper - it's just better. Cabs are filthy. Drivers inattentive and disrespectful - not always, but quite often. Safety? Forget it. Customer satisfaction? Who cares.

On Uber, you rate drivers and get to see the rating before agreeing to the ride. It is actually a service.

Once you've experienced Uber...you never want to take a cab again.
