MR TAN Yau Cher,
the owner of the car driven by his daughter involved in an accident,
is penalised by NTUC Income
(Income's reply "No insurance renewal for dangerous driving..." on Wednesday
to Mr Tan's letter "Don't let insurers leave car owners in renewal fix" last Saturday)
when it refused to renew his policy,
notwithstanding the 50 per cent no-claim discount earned after years of accident-free driving.
How about the younger daughter
if she buys a car and asks Income to insure it?
How about Mr Tan,
should he buy another car -
would Income refuse to insure it as well?
And if Mrs Tan or any of her children bought cars,
would they also be denied insurance?
What would Income do
had the daughter been driving a rental car?
Refuse to insure cars owned by the rental agency
because it rented her the car?
The action of Income seems draconian,
not just unfair.
