Male motorist pay more on motor insurance in a lifetime than females

A recent poll carried out by one of the big car insurance comparison sites has found that on average men will pay £17,000 more on their motor insurance in a lifetime when compared to women.

It is the men who seem to be hit more with higher motor insurance premiums than women probably because of men are seen as a risky proposition for insurance.

But it is the young men that really do pay huge insurance premiums on their first cars because on average they are a more likely to be involved in a car crash or accident.
