What drives up car insurance rates in Madison?

Where you live in Madison 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 Madison is no exception to the rule. From zip code 53562 to 53726, premiums rise by 4 percent—that’s $38.
