If you’re anything like me, there’s nothing worse than trying to drive knowing there’s a solid four inches of cement between you and the car on the other side. Road construction season opens a whole new doorway to disaster when you’re cruising the friendly highways-and makes it very, very hard to remember why you didn’t take the time over the winter to go shopping for auto insurance quotes online!
If you live in the north east (or anywhere that snow and ice wreaks havoc with the roads during the winter) you’re already knee-deep in roadwork. Road construction can make safe driving difficult, for many reasons. First, there are the cement medians I talked about earlier. 3-4 inches too far to the left or the right, and you’re up close and personal with a huge slab of concrete. Then there are road cones. Potholes. Exposed wiring and gas lines left behind by anxious road crews more worried about spending their paychecks than making sure the roads are drivable when they’re gone.
Unfortunately, if you have an accident because of any of these you’re going to be the one at fault. Why? We can only assume half of that is because insurance companies have never had to slog through mile after mile of road work and the other half is the foolish assumption that if it isn’t moving, it must be your fault if you hit it. Try to convince them that road cones went dancing across the highway before you could do anything about it and you’re liable to be slapped with the bill for a shrink along with one for the repairs to your car!
Since you and I both know road construction season is risky, there’s only one thing to do. Make sure you’re well insured. And the best way to do that without having to spend a fortune is to go shopping for auto insurance quotes online.
Where should you look when you’re shopping for auto insurance quotes online? The possibilities are (literally) limitless. Almost every auto insurance company across the U.S. is doing business online these days. There are also quote services out on the web that work with a large variety of insurers and can give you multiple quotes after only filling out a single form, helping you save time and money with a few taps of the keypad.
And if that doesn’t sound like a bad commercial, I don’t know what does!
The bottom line is that the web provides you with the greatest number of options when it comes to finding auto insurance quotes. Online, you have access to companies from the Atlantic to the Pacific and back again, and almost all of them will let you fill out a digital form for an instant quote instead of having to spend hours on the phone haggling with their customer service representatives.
So what are you waiting for? Go shopping for auto insurance quotes before road construction season gets the best of you. You’ll be thankful you did.
