Car insurance these days is ridiculous. Geicko, our current company, is dropping my car insurance because my son had a wreck in his car. What kind of stupidity is that? But so I'm calling around to get quotes from other companies. First, it's virtually impossible to speak to a real human being anywhere about insurance, and when you do finally get a quote it's outrageously expensive. I got a couple of speeding tickets in my 20s and 30s, but none since I've turned 40. And the only accidents I've been involved in the last 20 years have been with folks who hit me. I drive a car with all kinds of safety features, and except for getting hit my record is spotless. I can't imagine what kind of quotes people are getting who have a few recent tickets. If the government wants to legislate that everyone have insurance, they need to do something about keeping the costs down. But I guess that would cut into the politicians' kickbacks.
