Raised Rates Because Of Traffic TicketJan 08 2013
I've had auto (3 vehicles) and homeowners insurance through Farmers insurance for over 30 years with no accidents or tickets on my record. Now, because of a traffic ticket (not stopping at a stop sign which was hidden in the branches of a tree in another state), my insurance premium has been raised by $400 annually. According to our agent the good driver rating has been removed because of this one incident (which did not cost Farmers a dime). It is infuriating since I pay high premiums for insurance and then when there is one incident as this the rates are increased even more. I think this is an unfair practice and believe me I am shopping around for another insurance company.
