Why are some neighborhoods more expensive?

There are several reasons where you live impacts car insurance prices. The major items that impact geographic risk include:

  • Accident frequency – this is how often accidents occur
  • Accident severity – the damage that occurred and the cost of repairing the damage
  • Laws that can have the impact of increasing the cost of accidents

The first item above is impacted due to population density. Simply said, more densely populated areas have higher accident rates. The second item is directly impacted by speed. Areas with high speed limits tend to have a higher severity level. These two items can go hand-in-hand. Densely populated areas also have more freeways which have higher speeds. This combination of items directly impacts insurance rates. State laws also have a major impact on insurance prices.
