What drives up car insurance rates in Lubbock?

Where you live in Lubbock affects your car insurance rates. Besides your driving history and credit score, where you live is one of the biggest contributing factors to the car insurance rates you'll pay. The reason? 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 Lubbock is no exception to the rule. From ZIP code 79410 to 79402, premiums rise by 18 percent—that's $249.
