Driving In Maine: Statewide Information
Because of its location at the north east tip of our country, Maine isn’t one of our largest states. In fact, there are only about 1 million licensed drivers, and 1.2 million registered vehicles. The most expensive areas to insure your car are going to be the larger cities like Portland and Lewiston. Residents of those cities are especially encouraged to look over the many options for cheap insurance Maine has available to consumers. It is easier than ever to compare rates.
For instance, our research shows that a 40-year-old man, driving a new Camry with full coverage and liability limits of 100/300/50 can expect to pay only $78/month. That’s for limits that are double the state’s requirements! There are plenty of ways to save, and licensed professionals are standing by, ready to help.
Maine drivers are fortunate to have the lowest average car insurance premiums in the nation, with a 12-month average of only $889.
Don’t drink and drive! The average financial cost for a Maine resident charged with a DUI is $6,980 plus possible jail time or 90 day driver’s license suspension for a first conviction.
