One of the best ways to lower the cost of car insurance is simply to drive safely. Sounds obvious, but safe driving takes some work. Reducing distractions, driving smoothly in various conditions and taking care of your car all contribute to a clean driving record.
It’s worth the effort. Nationwide rewards customers who are free of at-fault accidents and free of major violations for at least 5 years. If you’re in this category, you could earn our accident-free discount of up to 10%, depending on the state in which you live.
Drive smart to keep your safe driver discount
Of course it’s also important to maintain a clean driving record, and avoid tickets for speeding, reckless driving and other violations. Those citations could raise your rates and wipe out any savings you might obtain from any safe driving discount.
