I love to praise people or companies for doing the right thing. Sometimes I like to rant about an issue related to my insurance profession. I always try to see both sides and stay positive. Email or text me a topic you'd like me to cover. I'd love to hear from you.

Jesse, from Forest Grove, Oregon, got stopped and cited for speeding three times on the same road he travels every day from home to work within three months. The difference in the insurance price from what he used to pay increased by $150 a month. He was suspended for a month and needed an SR22 certificate while applying for a Hardship Permit. The permit allowed him to continue driving the country roads to work. If he gets one more ticket, he’d be suspended for a year. Jesse is lucky he lives in the 97116 zip code. If he lived in Hillsboro 97123 or Portland 97203, he would pay $200 to $250 more a month.

I’ve seen worse driving records. My all-time favorite is Mark, who lived in Beaverton, 97005, had 29 tickets and accidents listed on his most recent three-year driving history. His auto insurance quote on his Subaru WRX was over $10,000 a month. Yes, I had a company who would accept him, but at a price. It’s been a few years since I last quoted him. If he listened to my advice and parked his WRX, he’d have a clean record by now and would be paying around $150 a month.
It’s incredible how some drivers can go their whole life and never get pulled over by the cops, and others are like a police magnet. Wherever you fit on the spectrum, call or text me at 503-693-2852. I’d be happy to see if I can save you any money. Or, you can complete and submit this form. I’ll get to it as soon as I can. I don’t sell your information. It stays here locked up in my computer until you decide. After 30 days, it gets deleted, and you’ll never hear from me again.
