What countries have gender equality for auto insurance rates?

I heard the European Union now makes it law for men and women to be charged the same auto insurance rates. (Finally, a gender equality policy that doesn'-t give women more privileges than men!) The Supreme Court of Canada on the other hand forces men to pay more.Are there other parts of the world where men don'-t pay more than women?

Gambit

There are some provinces of Canada that have crown corporations that provide mandatory coverage. These crown corporations are not allowed to use gender in determining rates. However that is in a few provinces, and not something that is practiced nation wide. Gender as a rating factor has been argued many times in court and the courts have always allowed it as the evidence proves a correlation. The crown corporations I mentioned before were legislated not to use gender.

Is there a chart somewhere on the net that compares the timing of auto insurance companies settling on claims?
Hard question to answer. There are simply too many "what-ifs" in each claim. Just because a company took along time to close a claim doesn't necessarily mean it was the company stalling or holding out payment. Each state has fair claim laws that dictate what is a reasonable amount of time...
