Before you decide how much coverage you need, here’s some things that Fargo auto insurance can do for you if you are in a serious crash. 

Who Pays If the Accident Wasn’t My Fault?

The driver who caused the accident, of course. Unfortunately, approximately  5.9% of drivers in North Dakota  are uninsured. If an uninsured driver causes an accident, the other driver is on the hook for the damage. That’s why you need “uninsured motorist coverage.” This insurance coverage will pay to fix your damaged car and handle your medical bills if a driver who does not have insurance hits you.North Dakota requires all drivers to have a minimum amount of uninsured motorist coverage. 

What Affects The Cost of Fargo Car Insurance?

Monthly auto insurance premiums vary greatly, so don’t expect to pay the same as your neighbor. While where you live plays a role in the cost of your Fargo auto insurance policy, insurance companies also consider: 

  • Your age
  • Where you live
  • Your driving history
  • The kind of car you drive
  • The number of cars and drivers in your household

The type of car you drive is one of the key factors in determining your car insurance premium. If you drive a powerful muscle car, expect to pay more than your neighbor who drives a used minivan. 

Any car that is more likely to get into an accident or is more expensive to repair or replace will cost more to insure. 

Commute Time

Simply put, the more time you spend on the roads, the more likely it is that you'll be in an accident. 

Fargo drivers spend far less time on the road than most, which can help keep insurance rates relatively low.

  • National Average: 25.4 minutes
  • Fargo Average: 15 minutes

Number of Auto Thefts in Fargo

  • National number of thefts for 1,000 vehicles: 2.94 
  • Number of thefts for 1,000 vehicles in Albany: 2.24 

You may think your neighborhood is safe, but car theft happens everywhere. And thefts and break-ins can be big financial burdens when you have to fix broken windows and replace stolen personal property.
