In Germany, if you commit an offence on your bicycle, it counts towards your points on your drivers license.  Running red lights, illegal turns weaving through traffic are all an offence if you're caught.

If you're ever found bicycling drunk, they will immediately take away your driving license.  The Germans figure that if you're not responsible enough to bicycle properly, you shouldn't be behind the wheel of a car.

fusillade762: Insurance company: because fark you, that's why.

So a private company that reserves the right to cancel it's liability insurance on you at any time - and clearly states this on the contract that you sign to - does so, as clearly stated in the contract, because you're a demonstrated liability risk, and you're enraged because of this?

DrPainMD: Hector Remarkable: Hi, I'm with the Grammar Nazis, and I'm here about the two 'l's in "cancelled"...

One L or two are both correct.

"Cancelled" is correct in British English.

Kimpak: Rufus Lee King: A grown man riding a skateboard has already given up his rights to anything at all.

Tony Hawk would disagree, but he's too busy skating around in his Scroodge McDuck style money vault.

And still pounding 20 year olds.

The seat belt ticket I can understand but if the ticket has nothing to do with a motor vehicle it should not affect your license in anyway.
I got to wonder if they used it as a convenient excuse to drop him and avoid giving him a discount.

It has a more rational connection to driving than your credit  rating does.
