Auto Insurance Rates Compared

October 19, 1986

The state Insurance Department released its first statewide comparative survey of auto insurance rates last week. The report cites one rating example and lists the rates for the 10 companies that sell most of the private preferred auto insurance in the state. The rates listed were in force in July.

Rates for the Westside can be found on Page 6.

State Insurance Commissioner Roxani Gillespie cautioned that the rating example chosen for the comparison "represents a minimum type of automobile policy."

"Most Californians buy more protection and drive more miles than our hypothetical example," she said in a statement attached to the survey. "In addition, in our example the driving record is excellent. In other words, most Californians will be paying more for their automobile insurance than the amounts shown on these charts."

A copy of the complete survey can be obtained by sending a stamped, self-addressed 9-by-12-inch envelope, with $1.41 postage, to State Insurance Department, 600 S. Commonwealth Ave., Los Angeles 90005. For the report covering only Southern California, the postage is $1.24.

COMPARATIVE CAR INSURANCE RATES: WESTSIDE The state Department of Insurance assembled this comparison of annual auto insurance rates by ZIP codes. The department warned that the comparison reflects minimum coverage, not average prices. Rates are for a driver between 35 and 55, married, with no young drivers and no citations or accidents, with a 1981 Buick Century worth $6,501 to $8,000 new. Deductibles vary between $100 and $250. Liability coverage is the minimum--$15,000/$30,000 bodily injury and property damage coverage, $1,000 medical and $15,000/$30,000 uninsured motorists. These 10 companies sell most private preferred auto insurance in the state. Their rates--these were in force in July--may reflect some differences in coverage. In general, all rates vary by such factors as age, sex, type of car, commute and driving record, in addition to home area.
