I seen this ridiculous post on the internet about some young man who lives in Northern NJ like me who could not afford car insurance. Since I have not owned a vehicle in over 10 years, it took me by surprise what young people in their 20s are paying!
According to the poster, if you never had insurance, expect to pay $8,000 per year in New Jersey if you're 18. If you're in your 20s, it's reduced to 5-6 thousand dollars a year for a new driver! THIS IS INSANE!
I don't get how young people can afford to go to college and drive new cars at the same time. I don't think I'll ever have a car if insurance for a new driver costs that much. I remember paying about 900.00 dollars a year for a 20 year old vehicle during my motoring days. I though that was expensive.
Regardless, I'm sending the writer of the post an email about the car free lifestyle on this forum.
