Frisco Car Insurance

Your 2017 Guide to Buying Car Insurance in Frisco, TX

Texas Car Insurance Costs:

  • National average cost per year: $1,311
  • Texas average cost per year: $1,449
  • 17th most expensive premiums in the US

Texas insurance costs are above the national average, but your actual premiums maybe higher or lower. Insurance companies calculate your rates based on a number of factors unique to you, including your age, your driving history, the value of your car, the amount of your deductible and where you park your car when it is not in use.

Vehicle owners with similar cars and driving histories may be assigned different rates depending on where and how often their vehicles are used. A commuter who takes the Dallas North Tollway daily may be assigned to a higher risk class than a couple who can walk from their apartment to their offices in Frisco Square.

Texas Car Insurance Requirements:

  • Bodily injury liability: required
  • Property damage liability: required
  • Personal Injury Protection (PIP): not required
  • Uninsured motorists: not required
  • Minimum liability limits: 30/60/25
    • Coverage up to $60,000 for all persons injured in an accident, subject to a limit of $30,000 for one individual, and $25,000 coverage for property damage.

Every state assigns minimum car insurance requirements for their residents who own vehicles. There are stiff penalties for failure to carry the required insurance coverage. First offenders face fines of $175 to $350; subsequent offenders are subject to fines of $350 to $1,000, impoundment of their vehicle, and license suspension. Lack of insurance coverage will also make it impossible to renew your vehicle registration, license, and safety inspection stickers.

Texas Uninsured Motorists:

  • National uninsured motorists: 12.6%
  • Texas uninsured motorists: 13.3%
  • Average vehicle repair cost in Texas: $2,434

Even though Texas works hard to crack down on uninsured drivers, the number violators is still higher than the national average. Drivers take risks when they drive without the mandated insurance coverage, but law-abiding citizens also take risks when they share the road with these drivers.

This is one reason why uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage is so important. By including this optional coverage with your car insurance policy, you can be sure that if your vehicle is damaged or you are injured by a driver who lacks the proper coverage or funds to cover your costs, you will still be able to collect compensation.

Number of Thefts in Texas:

  • National vehicle thefts (per 1,000 registered vehicles) : 2.94
  • Texas vehicle thefts (per 1,000 registered vehicles): 3.28

The National Insurance Crime Bureau ranks US cities by their rate of car thefts. The Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan area, which includes Frisco, ranked 66th on the list.

The only way to receive compensation for loss or damage to your car because of car theft, vandalism or other property crimes is by including comprehensive coverage with your Frisco car insurance policy.
