"Safety first" is not just a mantra that saves lives. It also saves money. Common sense tells us that the safest drivers will pay the least, and safe drivers qualify for "good driver" and "accident-free" discounts. But what if your record is less than perfect?
Drivers with a speeding ticket in Delaware should expect their monthly rate to increase marginally —plus fines. Drivers with an at-fault accident on their insurance record should expect to see monthly rates increase by around $15.
