Saskatchewan will give safe drivers bigger breaks on auto insurance premiums

REGINA — Drivers with good safety records are going to get a bigger break on their auto insurance from the Saskatchewan government.

The province has approved changes to Crown-owned Saskatchewan Government Insurance that will increase the safety discount on basic premiums to 25 per cent.

Bad drivers will pay more under the changes to be implemented after the next provincial election slated for next April.

Penalties will double to $50 per point for drivers in a penalty zone and there will be increases for at-fault collisions.

Points will also be assessed for less severe speeding infractions.

The changes are in response to customer input into a review by Saskatchewan Government Insurance.
