Teen Driver Safety

Jan 8, 2013   //   by admin   //   How To Find Cheap Insurance, Young Drivers  //  Comments Off on Teen Driver Safety

The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention has a great resource for teen drivers in their motor vehicle safety section.

The statistics are alarming: In 2010 seven teens died daily from motor vehicle injuries. Seven. Teen drivers were found to be three times more likely to be in a fatal crash than drivers 20 years of age and older. Vehicle death rates for male teen drivers were almost twice that of female teen drivers.

Surprisingly, even though teens cannot legally purchase or consume alcohol, the rate of involvement of alcohol in  motor vehicle crashes for teen drivers was higher than older drivers.

Teens have the lowest rate of seat belt usage than any other age group. Only 54% of teens report always using a seat belt.

Teens start off with the highest insurance rates of all drivers (before considering accidents, traffic tickets, etc…). A single traffic incident can make a teen driver almost impossible to insure. The lack of experience on the road, behind the wheel makes all the difference. Combine that with bad decisions and it is easy to see why teen drivers have such high accident, injury and death rates.

I bought a motorcycle and wanted to add it to my auto policy. It wasn't expensive, but it was more than I was expecting. I got three quotes at Online Cheap Insurance, and they were all less than what my current company charged. A policy for just my car was even lower than what I was already paying.

I filled out a quote form at another website, and I got 16 phone calls from insurance agents. Half of them weren't even in my town. And they wanted the same information that I had already put in the form. Pushy! At Online Cheap Insurance I didn't get any phone calls. I just picked the companies I wanted a quote from.

All the insurance companies here are names you've heard of. There aren't any no-name companies - that makes me feel safe.

I tried a form at cheapcarinsunrance.net, and didn't even get any quotes online, but at least ten phone calls from insurance agents. At OnlineCheapInsurance.com I picked five insurance companies and got quotes instantly. I was even able to buy my policy right from the company's website.

I tried a bunch of other insurance sites for quotes. I filled out a form and got nothing but pushy salesmen calling all hours of the day. I probably got six calls from each form I filled out. When I tried Online Cheap Insurance, I got a list of insurance companies that I instantly recognized. I picked which insurance companies I wanted quotes from. It was really easy.

Just put in my zip code and I got a list of big name insurance companies. Even my current insurance company was on the list! They didn't have the cheapest rate, but they offered better options on towing and rental coverage so I stayed with them. I didn't know I had a good deal until I compared what other companies could offer. I can check here again when it is time to renew my policy!
