Car theft figures rise nationally

The number of motor vehicle thefts in Australia increased in the last financial year.

A total of 17,578 vehicles were stolen for profit in 2011/12, up 1127 or 7% on the previous year, according to the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council (NMVTRC).

Some 42,296 vehicles were stolen for short-term use, an increase of 1965 or 5%.

“Crime is on the increase and cars are involved in most other forms of crime,” NMVTRC Executive Director Ray Carroll told insuranceNEWS.com.au.

“Another major concern is the growing demand for used parts throughout Asia, the Middle East and North Africa.”

Mr Carroll says rising unemployment may also be a factor.

Nearly half of all passenger and light commercial vehicles stolen did not have an immobiliser, or contained one that did not meet NMVTRC standards.

High Court dismisses Business Interruption Test Case

Today the High Court dismissed appeal by Insurers on the Business Interruption test case. Even the big insurers make silly mistakes! But you the policy holder may benefit if you were one of the 40% of Business Pack policy holders that added Business Interruption cover to their Business Pack. While it was never the intent of insurers to cover policyholders for the loss of income from a pandemic, the fact that insurers never factored in a risk premium for it, and the fact there is supposed to be a material or physical loss to trigger the Business Interruption section, none of that matters according to the highest Court in the land. So what was the mistake? Simply that when insurers defined what they considered to be the definition of an infectious disease, they referred to the Quarantine Act of 1908 which since was superseded by the Biodiversity Act of 2015. Because the Quarantine Act of 1908 no longer exists, apparently you cannot draw on this for a definition of an infectious disease? Not one of the insurers picked up on this! Shows how much interest we take on the business of Governments, except what is reported in the media.
