Connecticut Car Insurance


Did you know that Connecticut is the 9th most expensive state for auto insurance? Yet if you look on a map of the United States you will see how small in size it is compared to states with lower premiums. In 2009, the average premium for the state of Connecticut varied between $170 and $179 per month while the national average hovered around $151 per month.

In 2006, Connecticut reported 71,724 auto accidents and the number of licensed drivers was reported at over 3 million in 2007. Auto accidents are the number one cause of death for teens in the United States therefore Connecticut imposes severe restrictions for teenagers who violate those restrictions These limits include and are pertaining to the number of passengers allowed in a vehicle, breaking curfews or speeding. Connecticut is the first state to enforce a 48-hours license suspension for any of these violations.

Connecticut is an auto insurance mandated state, meaning that the state requires that all motor vehicles obtain and maintain auto insurance that includes liability against personal injury, bodily harm and property damage.

Although many auto insurance companies offer similar plans and rates, there are ways you can save money on your insurance premiums. High horse-powered vehicles, luxury vehicles and vehicles on the "high theft" list all cost more to insure. Stay away from these types of cars and also, should you get into a minor accident, determine if it will cost you less to fix the damage on your own rather than report it to your auto insurance company, as your premiums will increase. You see, the worse your driving history and or accident and claims history is, the higher your premiums will be and no amount of auto insurance comparisons will change that.

Accidents only involving property damage sometimes will not increase your premiums, especially if the damage is below an approximate amount of $750. The amount your premiums increase per accident or claim is determined by your auto insurance provider. It is not uncommon to find that providers will increase your monthly premiums 20 to 40% and still will consider not renewing your plan when it is about to expire. This alone should be incentive enough to become a more careful driver.
