The city of Los Angeles and surrounding areas is famous for two things: Hollywood and bad traffic. Los Angeles has a freeway system of immense size and complexity, which are notorious for traffic jams and congestion. Los Angeles County, which is the most populated county in the United States, including the cities of Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Glendale, has over 5.7 million registered vehicles on the road. With so many drivers commuting in and out of the city on a daily basis, it comes as no surprise that Los Angeles has high numbers of vehicle incidents:

  • 82,766 auto accidents in 2008
  • 57,077 vehicle thefts in 2009
  • Average commute time of 28.4 minutes
  • 18% of drivers are uninsured

Comprehensive Los Angeles auto insurance is a necessity. In order to properly register your automobile in Los Angeles, minimum standard auto insurance must be purchased from a California Insurance Department licensed insurer. California Department of Motor Vehicles requires liability insurance in order to register and operate a vehicle. The minimum requirements in order to register an automobile and receive license plates include the following:

  • Bodily Injury Liability
  • Property Damage Liability

California drivers who cannot financially meet the minimum requirements for auto insurance have the option of enrolling in the Low Cost Auto Insurance Program. Designed to reduce the high numbers of uninsured drivers, the program provides low income, good drivers with an affordable auto insurance option. For more information, call (866) 602-8861.

It is important to remember to shop for low prices as well as quality service. It is the driver's responsibility to determine the amount and types of coverage needed.
