All types of traffic violations have the potential to impact your auto insurance rates. Generally, the type and severity of the violation will determine exactly how your premiums are affected. Here are some examples of incidents that could impact your rates:
- Failure to use a seat belt
- DUI convictions
- Illegal use of a cellphone
- Running a stoplight or stop-sign
Of course, the easiest way to keep your premiums low is to obey all traffic laws and stay safe on the road.
