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.

Did you know?

Summer driving is beautiful in Maine, which hosts over 3,400 miles of coastline (more than California!) and several thousand small, mostly unpopulated, islands. However, winter road conditions can change at a moment’s notice, therefore all drivers in Maine are encouraged to be prepared for freezing temperatures at all times. Even with the best preparation disaster can strike.
