This category of driver represents a fairly large portion of the drivers out there. With so many cars on the roads these days and with so many high risk drivers – it is getting easier and easier to hit another car. Look at Springfield, there are over 160,000 cars in the city – the more cars the better chance you may “bump” into one.
Massachusetts works on a “point system”. Each time you have an incident you can get points That is how Car Insurance in Springfield Ma works.
Your first moving violation (like a speeding ticket or no inspection sticker) you do not get points for it – but it is listed on your record.
It is your next moving violation that you will get points for – 2 points. And each point accounts for about 15% more on your car insurance 0- for 3at least 3 years! Not a good situation.
If you were to get into an accident? If the insurance company pays out under $2000 you will receive 3 points. If it pays out over $2000 you will receive 4 points. And these points can stay on your record for up to 6 years.
Insurance companies look at these drivers as “high risk drivers” – and they will charge you a premium for your additional risk.
