Is Your Auto Insurance Updated for Fall?

Make sure your car is protected from these hazards this fall.

Due to all the changes that happen during fall, it’s a great time to review and update your auto insurance.  Not sure why you should update your coverage?

From wet weather to Halloween vandalism, here are some of the threats your car will need coverage for.

Wet Weather

During the fall months, most states experience increased rainfall.  This wet weather can make roadways slick and difficult to maneuver safety. Additionally, driving in the rain can also increase your chances of getting into an accident.  Finally, if you are located in a high flood risk area, then increased rainfall can increase your car’s risk for flood damage.  Make sure your car is covered for these potential threats by discussing your risk with your insurance agent.

Daylight Savings

While most drivers don’t consider daylight savings a risk, the time change could really increase your chances of an accident. Because we lose an hour in the fall, the days get shorter and the nights get longer.  This means that a commute that happened during the day in summer, may now be happening at night.  Due to this decreased visibility, your chances of getting into a car accident go way up.  Updating your coverage is a good way to be prepared for this time change.

Halloween Vandalism

Unfortunately for car owners, your chances of vehicle vandalism increase on Halloween night.  In fact, more auto claims are filed on Halloween than on any other day of the year.  Common claims include broken windows, slashed tires, and stolen vehicles.

While keeping your car in the garage can help reduce your risk of vandalism, this isn’t possible for many drivers.  The best way to make sure your car is protected is to have the necessary coverage this fall. Be sure to keep your car safe this fall by updating your auto coverage.  To get the insurance that your car needs, trust the experts at C.V. Mason Insurance Agency in Bristol, Connecticut.
