TORONTO, October 29, 2007 -- Today, Kanetix (www.kanetix.ca), Canada's insurance marketplace, released the results of its online survey, the Kanetix QuickPoll that asked visitors if they've ever NOT told their spouse about getting a speeding ticket. Surprisingly, 19 per cent said 'Yes'-- almost 1 in 5!
"Often, if you get a minor speeding ticket and it is your first ticket your auto insurance premium won't be affected," explains Gregory Ellis, Co-founder of Kanetix.ca. "But, if it's your second or third, chances are your rates will go up and this may be why some people hid it from their spouse."
