no fault policies and allowing open competition among insurance providers? I hope it changes. I am sick of paying higher rates for bad drivers who speed and cause accidents. I have no accidents and no speeding tix in 20 yrs of driving and I still have to pay high policies because the rates are predetermined depending on where you live and what step you are (9 being the best which is where I am but I still pay over $1000 a yr because I live near Boston). How do you feel about it?

No fault takes the responsibility for your own actions away. If I do not have to pay for the damage that my negligence causes to others, I have very little incentive to avoid that damage.You can see that in the way people drive in Mass. It is one of the more aggressive driving areas of the country. People have less fear of accidents, especially those driving older cars.There is no real competition for insurance in Mass. If you purchase a vehicle out of state, in a state that allows dealers to issue temporary registration plates, you can not get the current Mass insurance companies to cover you until you have registered the car in Mass. In most states, you just call your agent and have the vehicle added to the policy.No fault = No personal responsibility

NO FAULT IS NO GOOD. MY MOM WAS HIT BY A DRUNK DRIVER (NOT HER FAULT). TWO WEEKS AFTER SHE GOT THE CAR BACK FROM THE SHOP A DUMP TRUCK SWITCHED LANE ABRUPTLY TO AVOID A COLLISION AND HIT HER (NOT HER FAULT). THEN 1 YEAR LATER SOMEONE RAN IN THE BACK OF HER WHILE SHE WAS SITTING AT A RED LIGHT. HER INSURANCE IS THROUGH THE ROOF, EVEN THOUGH SHE IS NOT A BAD DRIVER. HER INSURANCE HAS HAD TO PAY FOR HER BAD LUCK. SOUND FAIR AT ALL?

Is it worth changing to AARP for auto and home insurance?
AARP is a club. They don't sell insurance. They refer their subscribers over to a company like Hartford. They shop the insurance out every year, and every year, you could be shifting to a different company. Yehaw.The rates you get, will vary wildly depending on where you live. There's...

Does usaa car insurance cover my vehicle if I am driving through argentina?
No.Auto policies in the US only provide coverage for vehicles while they are in the United States, one of it's territories (such as Puerto Rico) and Canada.You can buy special insurance for taking your car to Mexico. You'd need to look and see if those same companies offer coverage for other...

Is there a legal limit to the amount of horsepower that a street-legal automobile is allowed to have?
Insurance companies definitely watch out for insuring cars with high advertised power ratings. For the most part, I believe they are looking at power to weight ratios, but some I am sure stupidly look at only the bottom power figure.To get the best deal, you want to shop around with various...

My car is fully paid for, and I wonder what auto insurance coverage would be the less expensive and good?
liability is the cheapest. Liability plus collision if you suck at driving (you know if you do, if you get in a fender bender or close call once a year then think about it). Full coverage isn't needed anymore. Unless you're worried about an earthquake or someone vandalizing your car

Is there a reason to notify my auto insurance company of a student driver?
Yep, there's a reason. That reason is the misrepresentation / non-disclosure clause in your policy agreement (every policy has one), and it's serious stuff.An insurance policy is a legal agreement, and wilful misrepresentation voids a legal agreement. Your policy is no exception, I assure...
