WHAT DRIVES UP CAR INSURANCE RATES IN Buffalo
Where you live in Buffalo 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, Buffalo is no exception to the rule. From zip code 14224 to 14211, premiums rise by 22 percent—that’s $306.
Buffalo Driving Conditions
Inclement weather goes hand in hand with wet brakes, slick roads & decreased visibility.
