Well, I am sure it changed about the same time the insurance companies
were forced to charge the same rates for teenage boys as teenage girls
(even though the boys had a statistically higher accident rate) but when
I was younger there was a time when race drivers could not get innsurance
to drive on the street at all. The last person in the world I would like
to be sharing a country road with is a NASCAR driver. They drive specially
designed cars that only turn in one direction and only drive in circles and
still can't keep them on the track!!!
Boy do I miss driving in Germany.....
