Did you know that you shouldn’t admit fault even if you believe you caused an accident?

Never try to resolve a situation or make any agreements with other parties on your own without speaking to your insurance provider first.

Did you know that good grades at school can lead to discounted auto insurance premiums?

An at-fault collision, too, will likely result in an increase. Note that while demerit points stay on your record for two years from the offence date, they usually have no bearing on your premium. And when it comes to parking tickets, they do not appear on your driver’s abstract and do not affect your driver’s license or insurance record. Premiums too high after receiving a ticket? Perhaps it’s time to switch providers. You can check out all your options at
