Rising Car Damage Trend in Denmark Revealed by New Study

Danish motorists are experiencing an increasing trend in car damages, and a new study from the comparison portal Samlino, published by Bilbasen, reveals that one region in Denmark is hit harder than others. According to the study, the number of car owners reporting at least one damage has significantly increased in recent years. From the first quarter of 2021 to the same period in 2024, the number of damages has increased by a whopping 138 percent. In 2021, 8 percent of car owners reported damages, while in the first three months of 2024, this number has risen to 19 percent.

Regionally, it is the residents of North Jutland and motorists in North Zealand who top the statistics with 21 percent of car owners having experienced at least one damage in 2024. This is in contrast to drivers in Copenhagen, who seem to be better at avoiding damages, as this group has the lowest percentage of reported damages.

This trend of more car damages can have several causes, including increased traffic and perhaps a rise in distractions while driving, but the study does not delve into the reasons behind the regional differences. These new data may serve as an eye-opener for both motorists and insurance companies, which may need to consider new strategies to reduce the number of damages and thus the costs associated with car repairs and insurance claims. It is also a reminder to all motorists about the importance of attention and caution on the roads.
