Blank cheque motor insurance

... I received a letter from my insurer
informing me about the other car driver's application
to claim the cost of his repairs from my insurance.
His repairs... cost $3,500,
which was double what I paid to repair the damage to my car.
Are there any regulatory bodies guarding consumer rights
when a car owner uses these workshops?
It seems to me that they may quote high prices
when they know the owner is likely to claim from the other party's insurer.

The General Insurance Association has replied to this letter - stating the motorists are required by their "regulation" to report their claims to the other motorist or his insurer.

I have sent a reply to this letter and the Straits Times said that they will publish my reply.
