A protest group started on Facebook by a group of local people is gaining massive support. The group entitled “Get BB postcode insurance premiums reduced!” has already attracted over 2000 members as people in the Blackburn area become more aggrieved by the cost of insuring cars in the BB post code area.
The founders of the group, Anthony Simpson and Rob Daye, only started the group a few days ago and they are amazed at the level of support in such a short space of time.
Anthony said, “I want to highlight the fact that, while we created this group for BB postcodes’ insurances to be lowered for general drivers, the group also exists to get a fair deal for young and new drivers
“The insurance companies should not be targeting areas and users in groups, but looking at every
applicant individually and offering fair quotes”
The group which can be found on Facebook has also created an e-petition on the open government website for people to sign, which they hope will be available very soon.
The page is full of examples of people who have had massive hikes in insurance premiums or are simply unable to drive a car due to the high cost of insurance in Blackburn, which in many examples run into thousands of pounds.
Blackburn Life wholeheartedly support this campaign and urge you to join the group and sign the petition as soon as it is available.
The group are eager to gain the support of the local council and Jack Straw the MP for Blackburn, who has raised the issue of insurance cost in the commons already.
