Factors that can affect insurance rates are the weather and road conditions.
Like most Midwest cities, Indianapolis, IN enjoys four distinct seasons each year. Summers are hot, and winter is cold. Spring and fall are mostly pleasant despite wild temperature swings that can accompany the change in seasons. The rainiest period occurs between May and July, but it rains throughout the year, with 129 days of measurable precipitation in an average year. That’s a lot of driving in the rain. The biggest weather challenge for drivers will be snow and ice. On average, there are 23 snowy days each year.
In addition to the weather, the condition of Indianapolis roads is problematic for area drivers. The winter of 2013-2014 was especially severe making it next to impossible for city crews to respond to pothole repair requests. But potholes, ruts and cracks can be found un-repaired on city roads even when the sun is shining. Last year 1,227 claims were filed against the city for damages to vehicles from potholes. Only 5% of those claims were approved, forcing the rest of the drivers to go through their insurance company.
According to a recent study by TRIP, 17% of major Indianapolis streets are in poor condition, and 21% are mediocre. These pothole-riddled streets are in part responsible for the $377 a year drivers pay for extra vehicle operating costs.
On a positive note, according to TomTom's annual traffic index report, Indianapolis ranked 68th for worst traffic congestion in the US. TomTom reports that the average commuter spends an additional 15 minutes per hour stuck in traffic during rush hour commutes and 59 hours a year for peak hour commutes of 30 minutes.
