What drives up car insurance rates in Lincoln?

Where you live in Lincoln 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 Lincoln is no exception to the rule. From zip code 68505 to 68517, premiums rise by 8 percent—that’s $78.

Expensive Lincoln Zip Codes: 68503, 68524, 68527, 68514, 68517
