    The ACC system is not based on an "At fault" policy. AND NEVER WILL BE. It is based on an "AT RISK" (no fault) policy.

    Thus ... those that are involved in (ie: have a history of) more accidents than others ... should be deemed "MORE at risk of an accident" than others ... and have to pay a higher levy.

    Symantecs, The rules are different for private citizens in legislation. ACC cannot charge any individual higher levies because of their personal history. The rules change for businessess......"accident" prone forestry and construction companies have been hit with way higher levies for years. Insurance companies are another matter.......
    ....wherezz that track go

    LOL.........My apologies FJ, it was never my intention to derail a good wind up. My usually reliable sixth sense for spotting an extraction of the Micheal in progress seems to have failed me on this occasion.......possibly as a result of too many head knocks.......must be an ACC claim in there somewhere

    No worries ... I'm often too subtle for C to know I'm doing a wind up too .... straight over the head ...
