New research on the five largest auto insurers shows that premiums vary for not-at-fault accidents depending on location and economic status.
FOX's Jeff Monosso reports:
The Consumer Federation of America analyzed basic quotes in 10 cities from five of the nation's largest auto insurers and found not-at-fault drivers hardest hit:
(Heller) "In Queens, Kansas City, Chicago and Baltimore."
CFA's Doug Heller says Progressive was the worst offender:
(Heller) "On average Progressive raised rates by 17 percent."
Geico 14-percent increases. Farmers 11-percent. Allstate, almost 5-percent with State Farm. No drivers were punished for being hit by another driver.
Oklahoma and California prohibit not-at-fault surcharges. CFA's research also shows that moderate income drivers also pay more for premiums than upper income drivers do.
