A study released today says that more automobile accident claims are filed against Baltimore residents than Baltimore residents file against motorists from other jurisdictions.
"We are not the suers, we are being sued," said City Council
President Mary Pat Clarke said at a news conference today about a study on the feasibility of insurance organization to offer lower rates to city drivers.
The study, which was sponsored by the city and the City Wide Insurance Coalition and which cost $52,000, found that 35 percent of the vehicles involved in accidents in the city are registered outside Baltimore. "There is no fact behind the fiction of red-lining the city drivers," she said.
