Drivers with good driving records typically enjoy lower car insurance costs than drivers with histories of speeding tickets, at-fault accidents, or DUI citations. Nebraska drivers don't enjoy much of a rate discount for staying safe on the roads, as a lack of traffic tickets is rewarded by just a 14% price cut, compared to 17% nationally. In addition to earning a cheaper premium for driving incident-free, you may qualify for a safe-driving bonus through your car insurance company. The amount of these discounts may vary, but they typically run between 5 and 10%.
|Rating Factor||$ Savings||% Savings|
|No Traffic Tickets||$203||14.66%|
Young drivers (those between the ages of 16 and 25) pay extraordinarily high auto insurance rates, with those aged 16-19 paying the most expensive premiums of all. Because of the risk presented by inexperienced drivers, teens pay more than three times the national average for car insurance. In Nebraska, the typical teen driver pays $4,891 per year, which aligns closely with the national average for all teen drivers.

If you have a clean driving record — no at-fault accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs, or other recent citations — you'll probably enjoy relatively cheap car insurance rates. Conversely, a bad driving record will cause your costs to skyrocket: car insurance premiums typically increase by 39% after a DUI, 32% after an at-fault accident, and 14% after a speeding ticket in Nebraska. The post-citation penalties assessed by car insurance companies in Nebraska roughly align with national averages. If you have a clean driving history, be sure to inquire about your insurance company's safe driver discount.

Almost every auto insurance company advertises its cheap prices. But as with any product or service, the least expensive insurance isn't always the best choice. Considering what's at stake, it's worthwhile to do the homework to find an auto insurance policy that covers your vehicle adequately in the event of an accident. Be patient and look for the best value, rather than settling for the cheapest auto insurance you can find.
