Recent Kwiksure Study Suggests Expat Drivers in Hong Kong More Likely to Make Traffic Accident Claims Than Locals
Date:8/25/2013

(PRWEB) August 26, 2013

Kwiksure has recently released a study that suggests that expat drivers in Hong Kong are much more likely to make claims for traffic accidents than local drivers. Although there has been a higher number of claims from locals so far this year, the number of claims relative to the number of drivers is much lower than that of expats.

So far in 2013, Kwiksure has reported 314 claims from HK locals, which is approximately 1.16% of the number of policies KS has activated for HK locals so far this year.

These figures also align with those from last year. In 2012, KS recorded 1303 claims for locals and 332 claims for expats. However, KS activated 40,369 policies for locals and only 6,039 for expats. Along with this year's figures, the proportion of claims to new policies is almost twice as high for expats as it is for local drivers.

The experts at Kwiksure have given several possible explanations for these statistics.

Kwiksure's Motor Insurance Manager Ken Chung states, "Perhaps expats are more likely to get involved in traffic accidents, especially during their first years of driving in Hong Kong, because they have not yet adapted to the HK driving culture." Hong Kong is extremely congested, car parks and driving lanes can be narrow, and many other drivers on the road do not signal when changing lanes. Many of these expat drivers have also come from countries where they were required to drive on the opposite side of the road.

Chung believes that all of
