Thank you for your insight however I respectfully disagree with your opinion.
I will always bet on insurance. I don’t buy auto insurance because I am a bad driver. I buy insurance because I can not predict what tomorrow is going to bring while I drive my car. …(i.e. other bad drivers, auto defects that cause accidents, bad weather , road debris, pot holes) …you get the idea.
The great thing about driving a vehicle while you have insurance is that if an accident happens depending on what type of coverage you have you can even get a replacement vehicle if you total your car in an accident

The safety officer mentioned a phrase that stuck with ,e for the rest of my life … “ it’s not the fall that will hurt you it’s the sudden stop.”
