Several factors influencing your insurance rates are weather, driving, and road conditions.
Lubbock weather has a mild, semi-arid climate which is somewhat ironic considering the city's temperature swings in the summer. Summers are very hot, but overnight temperatures can be very cold, especially in the winter. In fact, this city gets an average of 8.2 inches of snowfall annually. While it does rain, there isn't much of it with most falling between May and September.
The winter cycle of freezing and thawing roads creates numerous potholes which can appear anytime and anywhere throughout the city. The potholes can be large enough to cause serious damage to your car should you drive over a large one. If you see a pothole, please report it to the city immediately so road crews can repair it.
Moving violations like speeding, failure to stop, speeding, and drunk driving will give you a bad driving record and raise your premium. That's because each ticket or accident can add points to your driver's license. If your insurer finds out, they won't like it and increase your rates. If you get a lot of points in a short preiod of time, your insurance company may change your status to non-preferred. They may even ask you to switch to an expensive non-standard or high-risk insurance policy.
The City of Lubbock Municipal Court website allows you to pay traffic citations, tells drivers how to contest tickets, and provides helpful traffic court information.
