More individuals on the road are unable to afford auto insurance. This is because of the poor economy leaving many individuals without jobs. This unfortunately had had the negative side effect of causing many individuals to flee the scene of an accident.
This creates many problems. First, it is unethical to flee the scene of an accident. An individual should take responsibility for their actions. Second, many of the individuals who flee are eventually caught and will face criminal charges on top of the costs of the damage.
Hopefully this trend does not continue for much longer.
