What drives up car insurance rates in Arlington?
Where you live in Arlington affects your car insurance rates.

Crime, theft and uninsured motorists vary by zip code. So if you find yourself in a neighborhood that doesn’t play well with others, car insurance companies may consider you a high risk to insure, meaning: your rates could be higher than those of a pal who lives just around the block. And, unfortunately Arlington is no exception to the rule. From zip code 76001 to 76010, premiums rise by 14 percent—that’s $186.
