Consumer alert: Save money on your auto insurance

OLYMPIA, Wash. – As the economy continues to struggle and more people lose their jobs, it may be tempting to drop auto insurance to save money. Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler urges consumers to look for ways to save on their coverage rather than break the law and run the risk of being uninsured.  

“In today’s economy, people are cutting corners wherever they can, but cancelling your insurance is not the answer,” said Kreidler. “Instead, shop around to find a lower rate. I continue to be surprised by how much some consumers save simply by shopping around. It will save you money now and could protect you from complete financial ruin in the future.”
