Insurance Premium Increase...

For reference:
My previous insurance policy's premium, for six months, was $625.20. After my accident and six months later, it is now $679.70. I'm assuming most of the $54.50 increase was due to my accident and not anything else (though theoretically it could be due to time or revaluation of equipment). Regardless, if my rate goes up by $110 a year for the next eight years, it was still worthwhile by a long-shot to go through insurance rather than paying out of pocket. All in all, my experience with GEICO has been exceptionally good and the _only_ thing I regret is that I caused an accident. As much as I wish I hadn't, I don't know what I really could have done to prevent it, and I'll just have to live with it. GEICO does make living with an accident easy.
