Cape Coral auto insurance costs by violation history

 

No matter where you live, steering clear of accidents and citations is the best way to keep your auto insurance rates low. At-fault collisions, DWIs, citations for reckless driving, and speeding tickets each contribute to increases in car insurance rates. Insurance companies reward low-risk drivers with the gift of low rates.

Two of the most expensive driving violations from an insurance perspective are reckless driving and DUI. In Cape Coral, a reckless driving citation results in an average insurance rate increase of $1,030 per year, compared to the citywide average. For comparison's sake, a DUI offense results in a $926 increase, and a speeding ticket triggers a $502 rate hike.

 
CAPE CORAL CAR INSURANCE RATES AFTER A VIOLATION OR ACCIDENT
Citation Average Annual Rate
DUI/DWI $2,951

Cape Coral auto insurance rates by credit level

 

One of the byproducts of a good credit score is lower car insurance costs. Drivers who keep their credit score up typically pay less for auto insurance than do drivers with less-than-stellar credit histories. Cape Coral drivers who improve their credit score from "Very Poor" (300-579) to "Exceptional" (800-850) can save as much as 59% on their car insurance premiums. If you move from the "Very Poor" credit tier to the "Fair" credit tier, you could be in line for an auto insurance price adjustment. In Cape Coral, moving into the "Fair" credit tier corresponds to an average of $1,501 in savings on insurance each year.

Credit Score Average Annual Rate
Very Poor $3,977
