In the state of Pennsylvania, many people own automobiles as their main mode of transportation. Let’s face it, how else are you getting to work? It’s just easier to drive a car when trains and buses are often late or unreliable. However, in order to get behind the wheel of a car, there are many requirements.
Skipping the basics, let’s jump right to auto insurance: drivers are legally required to carry bodily injury liability limits of $15,000/30,000, medical benefits of $5,000, and $5,000 in property damage. It seems like a lot, but when it’s all sorted through in your auto insurance, it can be made simple by a trustworthy agency like ourselves at Freedom Insurance Group, Inc. Instead of shopping for a complicated process, it’s easier to, instead, get one shaped for your needs and your car.
There are additional options to choose from, offered by most auto insurances:
- Motorist protection
- Roadside assistance: 24-hour/7 days a week support in the event of an emergency (such as, a dead battery, running out of gas, vehicle breakdown, etc.)
- Death benefits
- Loss of work
- Full coverage auto insurance: this covers your vehicle for comprehensive and collision in the event of an accident or damage to your vehicle.
Right now, there are seven million cars registered in Pennsylvania. Can you imagine? That is no bluff; auto insurance is a real need to many people, covering one, two, even multiple cars in their garage. When you look at the statistics on how many miles are driven annually, the cost of auto insurance in 2016 being averaged at $120/month isn’t so surprising.
Annual miles driven by age group:
- 16-19 years old: 7,624 miles
- 20-34 years old: 15,098 miles
- 35-54 years old: 15,291 miles
- 55-64 years old: 11,972 miles
- 65+ years old: 7,646 miles
- Average: 13,476 miles
