Salt Lake City has grown into quite the tourist destination, which is made easier by the two major interstates that cross through town (I-80 and I-15). There is plenty of skiing, camping, and other outdoor recreations which attract thousands of people each year. The economy is strengthened by Salt Lake City’s role in industrial banking. It is also becoming a hot spot for conventions, which can add a lot of new drivers to the road each year. If your rates have been affected by recent changes in the city, it may be a good time to look at all the options for cheap insurance Salt Lake City drivers are finding. Rate changes mean it’s a good time to shop.
How to Save Money in Salt Lake City
Know your neighborhood: The neighborhoods around the University of Utah are generally some of the safest, as is Cottonwood Heights. Residents of Pioneer Park, however, might find themselves paying more for coverage like comprehensive.
Know the city’s crime statistics: There were over 1,700 vehicles stolen in 2012, which means it’s probably a good idea to purchase comprehensive coverage even though it’s getting more expensive. Investing in an alarm or tracking device will not only keep your car safer, but will give you discounts to certain coverages.
Know your traffic: There are around 575,000 commuters on the roads each day, causing 30 hours of delay per year for each driver. This raises the risk of traffic accidents a great deal, and could increase your rates for liability coverage.
Consider Public Transportation options: The Utah Transit Authority has multiple modes of transportation including light rail and buses. If taking one of these systems is an option for you, we recommend it. Lowering the number of miles you drive each year will go a long way toward lowering your rates.
