Your driving record may be more important than you think

New information reveals that insurance companies use your driving record to when determining risk. This is not news when it comes to your auto insurance premium, but it does come as a surprise to some that your driving record could be a factor in your Life Insurance and Home Owners Insurance policies. Based on 7.4 million vehicle records from 2006 to 2010 crossed referenced with death records from 2007 to 2010, companies found correlation between a person driving record and likelihood of death. For example, people with serious violations, such as DUI, had a 71% higher death rate than people of the same age with clean driving records or minor violations. In this digital age, your driving record is becoming increasingly important. If you are charged with DUI, Reckless Driving, or any other type of traffic offense, call our office. We can help keep your record clean. The Law Offices of Steven J. Pisani specialize in the field of Criminal Defense. Call our Denver office today for a free consultation.
