The Zebra’s auto insurance data methodology

The auto insurance rates published in this guide are based on The Zebra’s annual analysis of average car insurance premiums in every U.S. ZIP code. This data comes to us from Quadrant Information Services, which sources the latest approved rate filings across carriers in each state from S&P Global. Quadrant then uses an internal QA process to validate the information and build reports before the data is queried and analyzed by The Zebra.

Rates are based on a sample driver profile — a 30-year-old single male driver with a Honda Accord and full coverage at these levels:

  • $50,000 per person/$100,000 per incident for bodily injury liability
  • $50,000 per incident for property damage liability
  • $500 deductibles for collision and comprehensive coverage

To provide insight to consumers on how specific personal factors (like age, location and coverage level) can affect your premium, this base profile is then adjusted for different factors commonly used by insurance companies. For more information, see our full data methodology.

If you want to keep your car insurance costs reasonable, keep your driving record clean. At-fault collisions, DUIs and DWIs, citations for reckless driving, and speeding tickets each contribute to increases in car insurance rates.

In Montgomery, a reckless driving citation results in an average insurance rate increase of $908 per year, compared to the citywide average. For comparison's sake, a DUI offense results in a $951 increase, and a speeding ticket triggers a $238 rate hike.
