Road Conditions

TRIP reports that 84% of the major roads in the Dallas-Fort-Worth-Arlington metropolitan area, which also includes Grand Prairie, are in poor or mediocre condition. The increasing number of potholes is especially troubling because of the damage they can cause, some of which are severe enough to warrant an insurance claim. According to TRIP, the poor condition of Grand Prairie streets costs local drivers an additional $791 a year, on average, due to higher vehicle operating costs, car accidents, and traffic congestion.

Moving Violations

Moving violations such as speeding tickets, accidents, and reckless driving will be added to your driving history and can have a dramatic impact on your rates. This is because tickets can go on your driving record for up to three years. If you get a lot of tickets in a short period, your insurer could change your status to non-preferred driver. This is the first step in a process that could end with a requirement to purchase a non-standard, high-risk car insurance policy.
