Rates are high due to the large number of crappy drivers and the number of uninsured motorists.

Combine that with vandalism and theft rates and you have a city that has high rates and gets a 63 in the survey.

Drivers with no tickets and no accidents pay through the nose due to the brain dead speeders, texters, cell phone users and airheads that wreak havoc on our roads.
