Auto insurance commercials are all about you, but one of the best reasons to have auto insurance is about protecting the other person that may be involved in an accident.

If you injure another driver in an accident that was your fault, you bear a social responsibility to take care of that person’s financial needs. There is a good chance you don’t have the money

Tips to avoid distracted driving

It seems to appear in the news far too frequently—car crashes, injuries, and deaths from distracted driving. It is devastating and so senseless to lose a life to something that could have been prevented.

Has it happened to you? I’ve never been in a crash as a driver, but I have as a passenger. My friend was just playing with the radio or

2013 Kia Rio review from a family of 4

I’m a big fan of Kia and the husband and I are seriously in the market for a new car. Really, we need two new cars, but we’ll start with one for now lol. After being able to drive multiple vehicles for Kia, they’re at the top of our list. Did you know they offer an industry-leading 10-year/100,00-mile warranty program?! They really stand behind the quality of their vehicles. I recently received the Kia
