TORONTO, February 14, 2008 -- Today, Kanetix (, Canada's insurance marketplace, released the results of its online QuickPoll survey that asked visitors if they've ever tried to hide the fact they were in an auto accident from someone in their family. Sixteen per cent of visitors said 'Yes'-they've tried to hide a car accident from a family member.


"Sure, these folks may have tried to hide an accident from a family member, but I wonder if they were successful," pondered Gregory Ellis, Co-founder of "Whether or not they were, an accident--especially if it's not your first--may impact your auto insurance which is why it's so important to get quotes from competing insurers to see if there's a better rate out there with a different insurer."

At, Kanetix offers auto insurance consumers-with or without tickets or accidents-a better and quicker way to shop for auto insurance; after all, Kanetix is the website where insurance companies compete, and you save money.
