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 Honolulu is no exception to the rule. From zip code 96813 to 96818, premiums rise by 0 percent—that’s $4.
