Rates.ca Highlights the Perils of Distracted Driving With New Infographic

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) October 08, 2014

Distracted driving is now responsible for more deaths on Ontario roads than both impaired driving and speeding. The Ontario Provincial Police reported that in 2013, distracted driving contributed to the deaths of 78 people, compared to 57 for impaired driving and 44 for accidents related to speeding.

“The threat to life is alarming and educating the public is a viable solution to reduce the risk and keep drivers safe,” said Daniel Shain, Director of Product, Credit & Insurance at VerticalScope Inc., owner of Rates.ca, a leading online rate comparison site. “We encourage readers to review the content of our thought-provoking infographic especially the common sense suggestions listed to avoid distracted driving and to promote overall safety on our roads.”

Currently, behaviours such as texting and driving, of which about 35 percent of Canadian drivers admit to partaking in, carries a fine of between $ 60 to $ 500, with no demerit points in Ontario, Alberta or Nova Scotia. However, a proposed bill from Ontario Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca aims to increase fines to between $ 300 and $ 1,000 and tack on three demerit points. Since traffic convictions remain on your driving record for three years, there is ample opportunity for insurance companies to raise premiums for major infractions during that time.

The Liberal government in Nova Scotia has already decided to increase fines and add four demerit points for people convicted of using cellphones while driving starting on February 1, 2015. From the current $ 176 for a first offence to $ 350 for a third or subsequent offence, fines will increase to about $ 234 for a first offence to $ 579 for a third or subsequent offence.

Nearly 250,000 charges were laid against distracted drivers in Ontario from 2011-2014. The stronger measures and harsher penalties to curb the escalating distracted driving trend are quickly gaining support across Canada.

Comparenow.com Provides Tips to Lower Auto Insurance Payments

Richmond, VA (PRWEB) August 12, 2014

Everyone wants lower car insurance payments. Car insurance is something all drivers must have in the United States and we dont want to pay more for it than we have to. If your rates arent as low as you would like them, dont get frustrated; you have more control over your car insurance premiums than you might have imagined. Here are a few areas to explore that could lower your auto insurance premiums.

Improve your credit score: The first step to lowering your credit score is knowing and tracking it. Personal credit does play a role in determining car insurance rates, so if you have some dings on your credit record or have no credit whatsoever, consider making this a priority. Consult Wisebread.com for tips and tricks for raising your credit scores.

Complete a driver safety course: Whether a driver safety course drops your driving record points or makes you eligible for an insurers discount program (or both) successfully completing these courses is one of the easiest ways to immediately lower your car insurance rate by anywhere from 5 to up to 20 percent, based on a number of factors. Learn more about how driver safety courses can lower your insurance rates.

Consider location-based factors: Its not always easy to do anything about your location, but know that it does impact your car insurance rate. This can be frustrating if youre living in a high-crime or urban area. Shorter commutes and private parking are two features that can help your rate in this scenario.

Compare rates: There are many different auto insurers to choose from and they’re not all the same what works best for one person may be a terrible deal for the next. For that reason, perhaps you want to learn a little more before you buy. Look at their available discounts, customer reviews, and of course, get an auto insurance quote to compare prices.

You can get an auto insurance quote from each auto insurance company separately, but to get the best comparison we recommend using comparenow.com where you can compare multiple auto insurance rates at once. We work directly with car insurance providers, so we ask the same questions they do. You fill out one form, get multiple quotes, and you can compare them side by side. Get a quote now and see how much you could be saving.
