Motorcycle review to kick off in May
April 4, 2013
SGI is forming a formal Motorcycle Review Committee (MRC) to examine key factors impacting motorcycle insurance rates in Saskatchewan.
The MRC, made up of motorcycle drivers, motorcycle dealers, motorcycle safety training providers, health care professionals and insurance brokers, will meet in May. An independent facilitator will lead the discussions.
“We welcome this opportunity to work with the motorcycle community and all affected stakeholders in finding effective solutions to the issues with motorcycle safety, rating and insurance coverage,” said Andrew Cartmell, President and CEO of SGI. “While rates are about dollars and cents, the biggest issue at hand is saving lives and preventing injuries.”
The initial MRC meetings will be used to develop a discussion document that will be shared with the public in June to gather further input. Based on that feedback, SGI will provide recommendations to government by fall.
Ideas and suggestions regarding motorcycle safety programming, rating structure and injury benefit levels can continue to be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Feedback on SGI’s current rate proposal, including comments on proposed increases for motorcycle rates, should be directed to the Saskatchewan Rate Review Panel.
