Six tips for driving long distances

There is a real pleasure in driving long distances. Even on today s congested roads; the freedom, the sense of adventure, the sheer joy of the road unfolding before you. But without proper planning, your adventure could turn into a nightmare.

Here are our top tips on how to enjoy your long journey in safety.

1. Keep your car in good condition

If you keep your car serviced regularly and check the basics before a long journey, your car is unlikely to let you down.

This means checking the oil, water and fuel levels, making sure all your lights work, and making sure your tyres are at the correct pressure. By doing so you ll be avoiding the most common causes of breakdowns at a stroke.

Read our simple tips for maintaining your car

For extra peace of mind, you might like to consider taking out Saga Breakdown Assistance .

2. Pack an emergency kit

It s important to keep an emergency kit in your car at all times.

It needn t be expensive or take up much room, as it only needs to contain a first aid kit, spare fuses and bulbs for the car, a foot pump or tyre inflator, tyre pressure gauge, a litre of engine oil, a road atlas, a couple of snack bars and a bottle of drinking water.

If you add a couple of blankets and a shovel in the winter, this should help keep you mobile no matter what Mother Nature throws at you.

3. Plan your route

Why not plan your route to take in a tourist attraction or somewhere you d like to see? It might add time to your journey but you ll end up enjoying the trip more, breaking the monotony (important if you re using a lot of motorways), and turning a necessity into an adventurous road trip!

4. Take regular breaks

The Government s advice portal recommends taking a 15-minute break every two hours to avoid fatigue, a major cause of driver-related accidents.

It also suggests getting a good night s sleep before a long journey, stopping in a safe place whenever you feel tired, drinking a couple of cups of caffeinated coffee and taking a short snooze if you feel sleepy.

5. Entertainment

Don t worry, we are not about to suggest a game of i-Spy! Long journeys can get tedious, so why not try a spoken-word book instead of the radio? Most libraries will lend them to you for free and they re a great way to help the time fly.

6. Take the road less travelled

Why not dodge motorways and use smaller roads instead? Yes, it will take longer but it s bound to me more interesting, and even if you want to do the bulk of your journey on them why not detour for a break?

Websites like offmotorway.com and nearthemotorway.co.uk provide an easy way to find great, independent places to eat and stay that are the antithesis of corporate bland.


Insuring Your Porsche Cayenne #2010, #auto, #blog #post, #car #safety, #driving, #porsche


Insuring Your Porsche Cayenne

Its no secret that the Porsche Cayenne is like no other vehicle in the world. It is a Porsche after all. So it should come as no surprise that this top of the line vehicle requires top of the line (specialty) auto insurance. There are a number of auto insurance providers that only write policies for classic and new Porsche vehicles, while others specialize in luxury vehicles, high-performance (sports car) vehicles, exotic cars, antiques, and other similar vehicles. While we cant name names, we can tell you what these specialty auto insurance providers offer and how to find them.

For starters, the great thing about opting for a specialty auto insurance provider over a traditional auto insurance provider is most specialty insurance providers offer the highest standard of protection Agreed Value. Both you and the insurance company agree on the actual vash calue of your Porsche, i.e. what your settlement amount will be in case of the loss of your car. If you both agree that your Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia is worth $70,800 and your vehicle is stolen or totaled, you will receive $70,800, less your deductible. Traditional auto insurance providers rarely offer this level of protection.

Next, specialty auto insurance providers typically offer the following:

– Genuine Porsche replacement parts
– Convenient 24/7 claims service
– Guaranteed lifetime workmanship on covered repairs through a Porsche repair facility or other authorized repair facility
– Exclusive relationships with high-end providers

In addition to Agreed Value, specialty auto insurance providers will also protect your Porsche Cayenne by providing:

– Physical damage coverage for theft, fire, car accidents, vandalism, weather related damages, etc.
– Bodily injury and property damage liability in case of an accident
– Uninsured motorist high performance car insurance
– Medical payments and personal injury protection (PIP insurance), which cover medical expenses, and in some cases lost wages and other damages

At $1,482 per year, the average auto insurance premium for the Porsche Cayenne is fairly low considering the value of this luxury vehicle. What you must keep in mind is: average rates are just that average. You might drive more miles than the average Porsche owner, you might live in a higher traffic area than the average owner, or you might be younger than the average Porsche owner. Many specialty auto insurance providers prefer to work with individuals age 25 or over. All of these factors (age, geographic location, gender, and mileage) will affect your rates as well as driving record, credit history, employment, number of drivers, and if you plan to insure multiple vehicles on the same policy. Luckily, all Porsche vehicles come loaded with superior safety features. This will help determine rates as well in your favor.

So, where should you look for specialty auto insurance providers? You can start by asking your dealership for a list of providers at the time of purchase. Your dealership will be more than happy to recommend some of the top specialty auto insurance providers in the country. You can also check with your state department of insurance. To locate your state department of insurance website for official figures. Simply search (your state) + insurance department to locate the official website address.

    Governor Herbert signs controversial bill making Utah s DUI level the lowest in the nation

    SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Governor Gary Herbert has signed a bill lowering Utah’s DUI level from .08 to .05, making it the lowest in the nation.

    The governor signed the bill late Thursday, hours after announcing to reporters his intention to make it law.

    “My responsibility is to evaluate and decide whether in fact going to .05 is in fact good policy. That’s my charge, is it good policy? And I’m here to announce that after thorough analysis that I believe it is good policy and that this new policy will in fact save lives,” he said at his monthly news conference on KUED.

    However, Gov. Herbert said he would call a special session to address “unintended consequences” of the law, which could also include delaying it’s implementation beyond 2019. Some lawmakers (including House Speaker Greg Hughes) have said they would prefer to wait until other states move to .05 so Utah is not alone.

    The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Norm Thurston, R-Provo, told FOX 13 he was thrilled by the governor’s decision.

    “We’re first in a lot of things and one thing we can be first in is prioritizing highway safety,” he said.

    The decision to make the change to Utah’s drunk driving law came after a lot of lobbying against the bill. In numbers provided to FOX 13 under a request to the governor’s office, 3,818 phone calls, emails and letters had been received as of Thursday morning asking for HB155 to be vetoed (including about 1,000 form emails), while 444 called or wrote in favor of the bill.

    Gov. Herbert said he did not believe the policy would hurt tourism as hospitality leaders have claimed, noting that much of the world has adopted a .05 Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) level.

    “If we look at the world, we’re not weird,” he said, adding that Utah could sell the DUI bill as making our state safer than others.

    Restaurant and hospitality groups — including the Utah Restaurant Association and the Salt Lake Area Restaurant Association — met with the governor to urge him to veto the bill. They insisted they did not condone drinking and driving, but feared it would harm their business by scaring people into staying home, fearful that one drink could land them in jail for DUI.

    “Any downturn in our sales from people who decide to go to a different state, don’t want to come to Utah or don’t want to go out to eat negatively impacts our sales which affects taxes in Utah, which affects the ski industry, the tourism industry, the hospitality industry and the restaurant industry,” said Doug Hofeling, the Chief Operating Officer of Wasatch Beers, which owns Squatter’s, a popular local brewery.

    Ski Utah CEO Nathan Rafferty told FOX 13 on Thursday that he did not believe HB155 would help lure tourists.

    “People have a lot of options when they go on vacation somewhere. It doesn’t give us a competitive advantage, that’s for sure,” he said. “We appreciate the governor’s thoughtfulness on how he approached this difficult issue. We are going to work with the governor’s office and Utah Office of Tourism to make Utah not only a safe place to visit as a tourist but a desirable location.”

    The American Beverage Institute took out full-page ads in USA Today and Salt Lake City’s daily newspapers opposing the bill and indicating Utah would lose tourism to Colorado.

    Supporters of the bill pushed it as a matter of public safety, by insisting no one should ever drink and drive.

    “Lowering the blood alcohol content limit reduces the number of deaths and injuries from alcohol-related crashes, and it will not result in negative consequences for tourism,” said Boyd Matheson, the president of the conservative think tank Sutherland Institute, which backed the bill.

    “Opponents of HB 155 are attempting to make this law about Utah’s public image – about limiting the choices of citizens and visitors to the state. HB 155 will have no impact on what or how much individuals drink – it is focused on protecting lives by ensuring those who choose to drink also choose not to drive impaired. We applaud Gov. Herbert’s decision to sign this bill into law.”

    If a special session is called, FOX 13 is told lawmakers could water down HB155 to delay when it becomes effective and its overall impact if someone is ever arrested with a .05 BAC. There could be a reduction in penalty to avoid someone losing their job or having a significant impact to car insurance. Other states have had a tiered system for DUI and the level of BAC someone is convicted of having.

    Rep. Thurston said he was open to making some changes.

    “Again, everything’s on the table,” he said. “Nothing’s ever off the table with the legislature.”

    Have a Question?


    Replacing the final stage unit # #replacing #the #final #stage #unit/blower #motor


    #

    Does your A/C-heater blower seem like it’s possessed? Does it quit working for no apparent reason, then come on again just as mysteriously? Does it run only at one speed no matter what the controls say? Does it keep running even when the car is off and the key is out of the ignition? Your problem is most likely a faulty final stage unit.

    Based on what I’ve seen here and elsewhere, this is a chronic problem with the E39, but fortunately it’s a relatively cheap and easy fix. There’s a good DIY here. but since questions about it get posted here with regular frequency, I figured it would be a good idea to post one here too. Some of the photos in this post are very large because it’s very helpful to see the details if you have no idea what’s going on here.

    BMW calls this thing the “final stage unit;” the parts guys call it a “blower motor resistor.” I’m not sure what the reason for the different terminology is, but it’s the same part. The PNs have changed a couple of times over the years, but as of the date of this posting, what you want is PN 64 11 6 923 204 and there’s a diagram of the system here. As far as I can tell, the same part is used in all E39 models (but you may want to confirm this). Bavarian Autosport has them for about $70, but they’re unfortunately available a lot of places, including the parts counter of your local dealership (I say “unfortunately” because it’s a reflection of how often this thing fails).

    For some reason, dealer service departments are notorious for not being able to recognize this issue, and may charge you for hundreds or thousands of dollars of unnecessary repairs without solving the problem. If you don’t feel confident doing this yourself (i.e. you’re the sort of person who is more likely to take an eye out with a screwdriver than a screw), at least bring them this information. Done properly, this is a 15-minute,

    This is what you’re replacing:

    The silver part of it is a heat sink. I’m not an electrical engineer, but I believe this thing allows the blower controls to change the speed of the blower by altering the current that passes through it. Inside is a bundle of resistors, and by sending the current through a different combination of leads, it creates the proper current to operate the blower at a desired speed. But resistors generate heat (thus the need for a heat sink), and over time, I suspect the constant heat up-cool down cycle degrades the resistors until they no longer produce the right current, and the controller can no longer send the right signals to the blower. Thus, the blower starts acting strangely despite what the controls are doing.

    Now, I’ve read a lot of horror stories about how difficult this replacement can be, but I didn’t find it that way at all. This is an extremely simple operation that took me less than 10 minutes. The hardest part was getting myself into a position where I could get at the faulty FSU.

    All you need here is a Phillips screwdriver, a flashlight (the one in your glovebox will work fine) and understanding that you’re working with electrical components, not mechanical ones. That means being mindful of how much force you’re using. Nothing in this operation requires any great effort, so if you find yourself needing force things, you’re doing something wrong.

    The FSU is behind the dash in the passenger side footwell. You’ll find it easier to work if you pull out the cover under the glovebox. It’s not secured by anything, so just yank it out. The FSU is behind a fabric covered plastic panel on the left side:

    You want to unscrew the screw (red circle), then slide the panel backward (see arrow), not out. It’s also held in place by two metal clips that attach to the frame behind it:

    Once you’ve got the panel out, lay on your back and look up at the space you’ve just exposed. The FSU is inside there.

    Inside the space, you’ll see a plug with 5 colored wires coming out of it. The FSU is the thing the plug is connected to, so you’ve got to get the plug out. The plug is held in place by two clips on the side, and you need to squeeze the clips to free it.

    You may find the plug a bit difficult to get out; if so, just wiggle it back and forth until it comes free. Don’t yank it out–you may break one of the wires loose, in which case you’ve just bought yourself an expensive and embarrassing trip to the dealer.

    The FSU is itself held in place by another clip at the bottom. You need to push this clip down at the same time you’re pulling the FSU out.

    Again, if you’re doing it right, you should not need to force anything. Once free of the clip, the FSU should slide out easily.

    You may find all of this easier if you lay on your back in the footwell to get your bearings, then sit up straight, reach under the dash, and do it “by feel.”

    Now, surprise, surprise, the part you’ve just removed won’t resemble the new one exactly, since as I mentioned, the PNs have changed a couple of times:

    Hmm, could this be because the original version was defective?

    Now just slide the new one in the spot the old one came out of. It should slide into place with a “snap” as the clip engages it.

    New FSU in place. Note orientation–it will only go in one way. If you’re having trouble getting it in, you’ve probably got it rotated 90 or 180 degrees out of alignment.

    Replace the plug, then slide the panel back in the way it came out. Be sure to get both clips into their respective slots, or it will hang loose. Replace the screw.

    If you’ve done everything right, your blower should operate normally now. If it’s not, go back in and check the connections. If everything looks right but it still doesn’t work, you may have other problems.

    Thank’s for the instructions, my wife has a 2003 530i with 54K miles and her blower stopped working entirely. Here’s a little story.

    The A/C stopped blowing air and I hadn’t gotten the BMW manual for it yet so I took it in to the dealership and I figured it would probably just be a simple electrical relay .
    They called my wife back telling her ;

    1) $440 to fix the blower,
    2) The A/C wasn’t as cold as it should be and they needed to replace the dryer – $790
    3) The plastic components (bushings) of her suspension were cracking and they could fail if she hit a pothole – $825
    4) Her fuel filter needed to be replaces – $325
    5) They recommended a fuel injector cleaning – $350
    6) Her tires were feathering and she needed a 4 wheel alignment – $350

    I went online and found your instructions on how to replace the blower relay. It took 15 minutes to replace and cost $100 for the part. Everything works fine and all the other items were BS not to mention 2 to 3 times what they should be charging for the services.

    For once crime didn’t pay.

    Oh yeah I forgot, they charged her $135 to tell her how they were going to rip her off. I ordered the manuals yesterday.

    Thanks a million. Saved me a fortune. I hate to think what the stealership would have charged me. Regards UK member.

    Thank you. Saved me from replacing the climate control unit unnessarily (Had a similar problem on my E36 M3 that was the unit). After reading your description, I replaced the unit in under 15 mins with no fuss or drama. It really was nice knowing the details without having to go “diving” under the dash in 90 degree weather.


    San Francisco DUI Lawyer and California DMV Hearing Attorney #san #francisco, #california,


    #

    San Francisco Bay Area DUI Lawyer and California DMV Attorney

    San Francisco Bay Area DUI lawyer Robert Tayac has been an attorney for more than twenty years and is recognized as being among the top driving under the influence (DUI) defense lawyers in California. With offices in San Francisco, Redwood City, San Rafael, Walnut Creek and Napa, investigators and experts working with this highly specialized DUI attorney represent clients accused of driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or driving with a blood alcohol level (BAC) at or above the legal limit in the criminal courts of San Francisco. San Mateo. Marin. Alameda. Santa Clara. Contra Costa. Sonoma and Napa counties and the Federal DUI Courts for the Northern District of California. Additionally, Mr. Tayac’s office represents clients accused of driving with blood alcohol level (BAC) of 0.08% or greater stemming from California driving under the influence arrests before the Department of Motor Vehicles’ Driver Safety Offices in San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose and Santa Clara. This law office accepts only a California driving under the influence case and a related California Department of Motor Vehicles license suspension action .

    Each investigator and expert working with this San Francisco Bay Area criminal defense firm specializes in drunk driving defense. Mr. Tayac is a present or past member of professional organizations whose focus is directed at representing individuals who are accused of driving under the influence, including the National College for DUI Defense, California DUI Lawyers Association, National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL), California Attorneys for Criminal Justice (CACJ), and California Public Defenders Association. As well, Mr. Tayac is a member in good standing of the The State Bar of California and is licensed to practice law in all California criminal courts and United States Federal courts for the Northern, Eastern, Central, and Southern Districts of California.

    California driving under the influence (DUI) arrests almost always initiate two distinct cases. The first case is the California driving under the influence criminal case. The District Attorney of the county in which the driving under the influence arrest occurred will most often charge the driver with two separate criminal violations following a California drunk driving arrest. The first criminal charge is for driving under the influence of alcohol, medication or drugs in violation of California Vehicle Code section 23152, subdivision (a). The second criminal charge is for driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or greater in violation of California Vehicle Code section 23152, subdivision (b). (Please note, a driving under the influence offense case will be prosecuted in the United States Federal Court for the Northern District of California by a lawyer working for the United States Attorney’s office if the arrest occurred within the geographic boundaries of the Presidio National Park in San Francisco, Moffett Federal Airfield in Santa Clara County or other land under the jurisdiction of the United States.)

    The second driving under the influence case is a California Department of Motor Vehicles administrative per se license suspension (APS) action. in which a person is at risk of having their California driver’s license (if licensed by the State of California) or privilege to drive in California (if licensed by another state) suspended. Drivers arrested for driving with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or greater in California have only ten (10) calendar days from the date of the driving under the influence arrest to request a DMV administrative per se (APS) hearing. If a hearing is not requested within ten (10) calendar days of the DUI arrest, the person’s California driver’s license (if licensed in California) or privilege to drive in California (if licensed by another state) will automatically be suspended thirty (30) days from the date of the arrest for a minimum of four (4) months.

    California Department of Motor Vehicles license suspension hearings are highly technical and case specific. For this reason, DMV hearings should only be handled by a lawyer with specialized experience in DUI defense and California DMV cases. To suspend a driver’s license following a California drunk driving arrest, the Department of Motor Vehicles need only prove by a preponderance of the evidence (more likely than not) that the police had reasonable cause to believe a violation of Vehicle Code Section 23152 or Section 23153 was committed, that the driving under the influence arrest was lawful, and that the driver had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or greater at the time of driving. California DMV administrative hearings can be won, but usually only by an attorney with knowledge of the administrative per se hearing process. the type of evidence presented and familiarity with the possible defenses in drunk driving and DMV cases.

    The stakes are high in a California drunk driving case and the consequences are severe. A driving under the influence arrest in California may result in jail. large fines. driver’s license suspensions. mandatory alcohol education classes. ignition interlock devices. and other punishment. For that reason, it is important to have a qualified driving under the influence defense lawyer handling your case as soon after the arrest as possible. If you, a relative or someone you know has been or may be accused of drunk driving, driving with a blood alcohol level at or above the legal limit, or driving under the influence of medication or drugs, we invite you to read the information contained in this website and welcome you to call our office to discuss your case with an experienced DUI lawyer. If you prefer, you may submit a confidential case questionnaire which will be reviewed by a lawyer and receive a prompt response.

    Florida Speeding Ticket

    Speeding Ticket Options and Fines

    What to do if you Get a Traffic Ticket in Florida

    Over 4 million traffic citations were issued in 2003 in Florida – that’s 4 million tickets. The bulk of these traffic tickets are for speeding but improper lane change, careless driving, running red lights, and other moving violations were very common as well.

    Options Available to Satisfy a Traffic Citation

    You are required to satisfy your traffic citation within thirty (30) calendar days. Your options may depend on your driving record but if your drivers license is in good standing typical options are as follows:

    Traffic School Option

    The benefits of electing the traffic school option in Florida are that your auto insurance cannot go up and your policy cannot be cancelled. If you complete a state approved traffic school course and submit your certificate of completion to the clerk of court in the county where you received the ticket by their specified deadline adjudication is withheld, which means you are not deemed guilty and you received no points.

    Florida Approved Traffic Schools

    123Driving.com offers Florida DMV approved traffic school online

    Another option is to look in your local yellow pages under traffic school or driving instruction

    State of Florida Policy for Electing Traffic School

    Florida Statute 626.9541(1)(o) 12 States: “No insurer shall impose or request an additional premium, cancel a policy, or issue a non renewal notice on any insurance policy or contract because of any traffic infraction when adjudication of guilt is withheld and no points have been accessed pursuant to s.318.14(9) and (10). However, this subparagraph does not apply to traffic infractions involving accidents in which the insurer has incurred a loss due to the fault of the insured.”

    Pay the Civil Penalty

    If you pay the full fine points will be applied against your drivers license when applicable and your auto insurance rates may go up or your policy may be cancelled.

    Traffic Fines

    Fines vary by County as an Example we have provided the fines for Orange County (The Orlando Area)

    The fines for a Florida speeding ticket listed above are only used to illustrate the typical fees. You should verify your fine with clerk of court in the county where you received your traffic ticket.

    Request a Court Appearance

    If you elect the option to request a court appearance for the violation(s) and it is determined that an infraction has been committed, the Court may adjudicate you guilty, assess points, impose a civil penalty not to exceed $500 ($1000 for violations involving a death or speeding in school/construction zones) or require you to attend traffic school. or all of the above. Additionally, your insurance rates may go up or your policy may be cancelled.

    Penalties for Driving Without Insurance in California

    Find the Cheapest Insurance Quotes in Your Area

    You are required to carry either proof of liability insurance or one of the accepted alternatives when you’re driving in California. The proof of liability insurance must be at least 15/30/5 in coverage. or be one of the acceptable alternative proofs (for example, receipt of money deposit with the State Treasurer). Getting caught without valid insurance or evidence in the Golden State results in a number of penalties since you’re required to demonstrate financial responsibility. Depending on the severity of the situation you were in when found uninsured – such as being involved in an accident, receiving a traffic ticket, or getting identified through the DMV’s online registration check-up – the penalties vary. You could face more than $1,000 fine plus penalty assessments, vehicle impoundment, and even up to four years of driving privilege suspension in California when you have been caught driving uninsured more than once. In addition, the cost of your California auto insurance could go up with these records of insurance lags and tickets.

    Penalties for Driving Without Insurance

    Anytime a peace officer pulls you over for traffic violations in Cali, he or she has the power to ask you to present three things: your driver’s license, CA vehicle registration, and evidence of auto insurance. Failure to present valid proof of insurance that meets the state requirements could result in a fine that could be anywhere between $360 and $720 or more (on top of the traffic violation ticket fine). Whether you are truely uninsured, or have forgotten to carry your insurance card, you will get a ticket. However, in case you are actually insured, you may be able to appeal for reduced fine in court.

    Penalties for 1st Offense

    For a 1st offense, you’ll have to pay fines between $100-200. That doesn’t sound like a whole lot, but that’s because penalty assessment fees have not been included. Penalty assessment is a fee that is added to the base bail and base fine amounts on infraction, misdemeanor, and felony offenses. The current penalty assessment is $26 for every $10 of the base fine amount. For a fine between $100-200, you’ll be paying penalty assessment between $260-520, making your total fine somewhere between $360-720. In addition, the court may order the impoundment of your vehicle.

    Penalties for 2nd Offense

    For a 2nd offense, the severity of your penalties will increase and the fines will be between $200-500. The penalty assessment for a $200-500 fine would be between $520-1,300, making your total fee somewhere between $720 and $1,800. To put those numbers into perspective, the average annual cost of car insurance in California is $1,962. If your fine for driving without auto insurance is a total of $1,800, you’re actually paying the cost of nearly a year’s worth of auto insurance.

    Penalties for Driving Without Insurance In An Accident

    Whenever you are involved in a collision accident in California that resulted in property damage in excess of $750, bodily injury, or even death, regardless of which driver was at fault, the accident must be reported and both drivers must present evidence of financial responsibility to the Department of Motor Vehicles. If you do not provide proof of financial responsibility for your vehicle in effect at the time of the accident, on top of the fine, your license will be suspended for a mandatory one-year period, and your car may be impounded until you pay the necessary towing and storage fee. After one year, you can apply to have your driving privileges reinstated on the condition that you have proof of financial responsibility. Should you be caught a second time without insurance in an accident, your license will be suspended for up to four years.

    Here is a table that illustrates the offense with the corresponding penalties:

    8 Things That Every DUI Offender That Needs Car Insurance Should Know

    Are you a DUI offender that needs car insurance? Or maybe you are trying to help a friend find insurance after they were recently convicted of a DUI? Fortunately for you, there are more top-rated insurance providers than ever before are offering quality policies to DUI offenders. The high-risk status that comes with a DUI charge, however, could make finding that quality car insurance policy at a cheap rate a monumental task.

    What a DUI on Your Record Means for Insurance Providers

    Table of Contents

    A DUI mark on your DMV record can lead to an astronomical rate increase on your car insurance policy. That increase could cause you to pay as much as six thousand dollars more each year for your auto insurance premium.

    Your car insurance provider determines your monthly rate by determining how risky you are to insure. While each provider may use a slightly different formula to calculate your rate, they generally use the same variety of factors. These factors include:

    The type of car you drive

    What driving infractions you have on your record

    The number of driving infractions you have on your record

    Illustration Comparison of Insurance Firms

    Note: This is a monthly insurance premium. Your rates will vary by insurance company. In most instances, getting insurance after a major traffic violation your monthly premium is doubled.

    High Risk Driver Classification

    There’s no doubt that a DUI offense will classify you as a high risk driver. What that means for you largely depends on the mentioned factors. Being classified as a high-risk driver could result in the one of the following consequences:

    Your rates will increase

    You will have to purchase the more expensive “high-risk” insurance

    Your existing car insurance policy will be cancelled completely.

    The riskier you were to insure prior to your DUI conviction will be the largest determining factor as to which of the three consequences you are most likely to face from your current auto insurance provider.

    Second Illustration Comparison

    Note: This is a monthly insurance premium comparison. Your quotes will vary by driver history and other factors.

    Why Was My Car Insurance Policy Cancelled?

    Most car insurance providers will raise your rates rather than cancel your policy completely. With that said, there are times when a provider will decide that it is in their best interests to sever ties with you as a customer.

    If you’re hit with a cancellation notice after your DUI conviction. you may be asking yourself, “why me?”

    Well, there are a few things that could have caused your policy to be cancelled. For first time DUI offenders, a policy cancellation pretty much means one thing: your driving record prior to the DUI conviction was abysmal at best. More than likely, you have already filed multiple accident claims or you have at least a few driving infractions on your record. You might also have your policy cancelled if you get convicted of a DUI before your 21st birthday. Lastly, you may be hit with a policy cancellation notice if you’ve already been convicted of DUI in the past.

    To sum it all up – if you were already considered a high risk driver prior to your recent DUI conviction, your insurance provider has little reason to keep you around as a customer.

    The Dreaded SR-22?

    If you’ve done a little bit of research about the consequences of a DUI, then you’ve definitely seen the term SR-22 mentioned once or twice.

    So what is an SR-22?

    An SR-22 is a form that most states will require you to fill out following a DUI charge. It is used by the DMV to check to see if you have valid insurance coverage. This form is also used for those that have had their license revoked for other serious infractions, though it’s most commonly associated with DUI offenses.

    Most states require drivers that have recently had their license reinstated to have car insurance. If you don’t have insurance, you’ll need to surrender your license.

    SR-22 Insurance Providers

    What is High Risk Insurance and How Will It Affect My Rates?

    Many insurance providers offer DUI offenders high risk insurance. Drivers are typically classified as high risk if auto insurance companies think they are more likely to be involved in an accident or stopped for a driving infraction. With a DUI conviction under your belt, there’s no doubt that you’ll be viewed as a high risk driver – at least for a few years following the offense.

    Once you’re classified as a high-risk driver, you can count on your car insurance rates to soar, and remain at an elevated level for years to come. That means that you’ll pay thousands more every year for the better part of a decade.

    Are All DUI Charges Created Equal?

    Believe it or not, not all DUI charges are created equal in the eyes of an insurance provider. Granted, any kind of DUI conviction will result in an increase in your auto insurance premium. However, a 2nd or 3rd DUI offense will definitely result in harsher penalties than the first. Furthermore, a DUI offense that is coupled with speeding or reckless driving can also lead to more severe penalties from your insurance provider.

    How Can I Lower My DUI Insurance Rate Articles

    While your premium will significantly increase with any kind of DUI conviction, there are some ways to reduce your rates and save yourself a few dollars. By taking Defensive Driving, or other similar classes, you can typically knock down your insurance rate by a few percentage points. In addition, you may want to ask your auto insurance company if they offer discounts for combined auto and home policies. Finally, it is always recommended to compare rates with other companies that offer DUI auto insurance. You can perform a comparison by using the AutoInsureSavings advanced quote platform at the top of the page.

    State of Delaware – Search and Services/Information

    Q. What are the insurance requirements for vehicles registered out-of-state operating in Delaware?

    A: Only liability insurance policies validly issued by companies authorized to write in the State of Delaware shall satisfy the insurance requirements. Minimum coverage for any one accident is:

    • $15,000 for bodily injury or death of one person
    • $30,000 for bodily injury or death of two or more persons
    • $10,000 for injury to or destruction of property of others

    As long as there is a valid registration, even if the vehicle is off the road, liability insurance must be in effect at all times.

    Q. What is the penalty for driving without insurance?

    A: When a law enforcement officer stops you for any reason, you will be required to show valid proof of insurance on the vehicle. If you are driving a vehicle while not having the proper insurance, upon conviction, you will be fined not less than $1500 for the first offense and $3000 for each subsequent offense occurring within 3 years of a former offense. Driving license and/or privileges will also be suspended for 6 months.

    Q. Do I have to surrender my plates when I cancel my vehicle insurance?

    A: Yes. License plates must be surrendered to the Division prior to canceling insurance for any reason on vehicles with active registrations. You may take your tag to the nearest Delaware DMV office. Tags will be returned at no charge if proper insurance is provided and the registration has not expired.

    Tags may be mailed to the Division along with a note explaining why tags are being surrendered, for example:

    • canceling the liability insurance
    • sold the vehicle
    • titled vehicle in another state
    • vehicle was junked

    Mailing address:
    Division of Motor Vehicles
    Uninsured Motorist Section
    P O Box 698
    Dover DE19903

    Q. What can happen if I don t surrender my plates when I cancel my insurance?

    A: The DMV receives notices from insurance companies when insurance has cancelled. As a result, you may be audited to provide proof of valid liability insurance from the date of cancellation. If it is determined that you were uninsured the penalties are:

    • $100 per vehicle for being uninsured from 1-30 days
    • An additional $5 per vehicle for each day after the 30 days or until tags/registration are surrendered, insurance is obtained or the registration tag expires
    Q. What must I do if DMV audits my vehicle for proof of insurance?

    A: Contact your insurance company/agent immediately and have them provide you with a Delaware Insurance Certification Form, FR-19. The FR-19 is a certification that the vehicle has been continuously insured since the verification date and that coverage is presently in force.

    Q. What can happen if I don t respond to the DMV insurance audit?

    A: The vehicle registration and all owners driver s licenses will be suspended. Any suspension imposed by DMV will require owners to pay reinstatement fees of for each driver s license and for each registration in addition to the penalties imposed for lapse in insurance coverage.

The insurance company and DMV are only required to send their notices to the address on their records. Therefore, not receiving their correspondence because of an address change does not relieve you from replying to an audit. Driver s licenses and vehicle registrations must reflect current address.

    Q. What if I no longer own the vehicle?

    Insuring Your Porsche Cayenne #2010, #auto, #blog #post, #car #safety, #driving, #porsche


    Insuring Your Porsche Cayenne

    Its no secret that the Porsche Cayenne is like no other vehicle in the world. It is a Porsche after all. So it should come as no surprise that this top of the line vehicle requires top of the line (specialty) auto insurance. There are a number of auto insurance providers that only write policies for classic and new Porsche vehicles, while others specialize in luxury vehicles, high-performance (sports car) vehicles, exotic cars, antiques, and other similar vehicles. While we cant name names, we can tell you what these specialty auto insurance providers offer and how to find them.

    For starters, the great thing about opting for a specialty auto insurance provider over a traditional auto insurance provider is most specialty insurance providers offer the highest standard of protection Agreed Value. Both you and the insurance company agree on the actual vash calue of your Porsche, i.e. what your settlement amount will be in case of the loss of your car. If you both agree that your Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia is worth $70,800 and your vehicle is stolen or totaled, you will receive $70,800, less your deductible. Traditional auto insurance providers rarely offer this level of protection.

    Enlarge Photo

    Next, specialty auto insurance providers typically offer the following:

    – Genuine Porsche replacement parts
    – Convenient 24/7 claims service
    – Guaranteed lifetime workmanship on covered repairs through a Porsche repair facility or other authorized repair facility
    – Exclusive relationships with high-end providers

    In addition to Agreed Value, specialty auto insurance providers will also protect your Porsche Cayenne by providing:

    – Physical damage coverage for theft, fire, car accidents, vandalism, weather related damages, etc.
    – Bodily injury and property damage liability in case of an accident
    – Uninsured motorist high performance car insurance
    – Medical payments and personal injury protection (PIP insurance), which cover medical expenses, and in some cases lost wages and other damages

    At $1,482 per year, the average auto insurance premium for the Porsche Cayenne is fairly low considering the value of this luxury vehicle. What you must keep in mind is: average rates are just that average. You might drive more miles than the average Porsche owner, you might live in a higher traffic area than the average owner, or you might be younger than the average Porsche owner. Many specialty auto insurance providers prefer to work with individuals age 25 or over. All of these factors (age, geographic location, gender, and mileage) will affect your rates as well as driving record, credit history, employment, number of drivers, and if you plan to insure multiple vehicles on the same policy. Luckily, all Porsche vehicles come loaded with superior safety features. This will help determine rates as well in your favor.

    So, where should you look for specialty auto insurance providers? You can start by asking your dealership for a list of providers at the time of purchase. Your dealership will be more than happy to recommend some of the top specialty auto insurance providers in the country. You can also check with your state department of insurance. To locate your state department of insurance website for official figures. Simply search (your state) + insurance department to locate the official website address.
