- True or False? Myths about Auto Insurance
Truth: The color of your vehicle has as much impact on your insurance as wind blowing on Mars. Meaning, that it has no impact on your car insurance.
- You can keep your rates from rising by not reporting an accident
Truth: if you get into an accident with another driver, they may file the claim. If they do, it’s only a matter of time until their insurance company files a claim against yours. Once this happens, your premiums may increase accordingly.
- Premiums rise as you age into your elder years
The opposite is actually quite true. Drivers over the age of 55 may qualify for senior citizen reduced car insurance rates. This is often done after the driver completes a safe driving course (and passes).
