Navarro, Paradee Trying To Regulate Car Insurance Prices


Delawareans shopping for car insurance may no longer have their prices effected by certain criteria. Representative Trey Paradee and Insurance Commissioner Trinidad Navarro proposed legislation Thursday that would not allow insurance companies to change your price based on age, marital status, credit, income and personal life decisions. House Bill 80 would create a set list of rating factors that would determine your rates and premiums. That list includes: your at-fault accident history and safety record, the number of miles you drive each year and your years of driving experience. Representative Paradee said that drivers deserve to be judged on their driving record, not their personal details. Similar laws have already been passed in Maryland, California, Hawaii and Maine.
