This question came in from a blogger of ours:

Hi, I have a friend who is just getting his license back after having it suspended for an impaired driving ticket.  He lives in California, and I do not, so I’m not sure about how their auto insurance works.  He just received a car insurance quote for $7,000/year.  That sounded crazy to me.  Is this possible?

In California a DUI arrest and conviction costs an enormous amount of money in so many areas.  First, in court the legal fees your friend has paid I’m sure has already amounted to thousands of dollars.  It’s a very expensive proposition.  Once all that gets settled, then the car insurance companies get to start raking in their profits from raising his insurance premiums or dropping his insurance altogether.

While that may sound crazy to you, it is not unreasonable for someone with an impaired driving conviction and has now been classified as a California high risk insurance driver.  The auto insurance company now sees your friend as much higher risk considering the liability that an impaired driver presents to himself and other people on the road and the potential that it may happen again because your friend likely still needs to drive at least for work.

I would suggest your friend shop around to get the best auto insurance quotes and find the best policy.  That way he knows what his options are.  Getting multiple quotes here at OnlineInsuranceAgents.net will allow him to shop and compare to get the lowest premiums even though they will be considerably higher than what a driver in a normal insurance situation may pay.  It is possible depending on the severity of his infraction and conviction that some companies may not even offer him insurance.
