Waukegan is the fifth-largest city on the west shore of Lake Michigan. The largest employers in the city are the county government, the school district, and the medical industry. This means that if you work in one of those fields there is a good chance you are eligible for additional discounts on your auto policy (can be up to 15% off your premium in most cases). Waukegan’s population hasn’t grown much in the last decade which has helped keep the average insurance price steady, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still save money. With so many companies competing for your business, we suggest re-shopping your policy every renewal to be sure you are paying the lowest available price.
