* Credit score, while used in other states, is considered discriminatory in California and thus is not used as a rating factor when companies determine how much you'll pay for auto insurance every year.
What drives up car insurance rates in Riverside?
Where you live in Riverside 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 Riverside is no exception to the rule. From zip code 92506 to 92522, premiums rise by 13 percent—that’s $178.
