One Good Reason to Shop With Us

"After being with my insurance company for just shy of 10 years, and after having shopped

read more...

at companies that everyone around my hometown swore were the cheapest (including unadvertised "bargain" companies and giant comparison shopping brands), I decided to shop here at CheapCarInsurance and ended up saving just under $1,100 off my annual insurance bill, which is a lot more than I ever could have imagined anyone saving, especially me, an avid online shopper and extreme bargain hunter [...]

This is pretty ridiculous considering the fact that: 1st, I had regularly asked my former insurance company for reviews and discounts; 2nd, I recently got a speeding ticket in a school zone (which I am a bit ashamed to say) just before I switched; and 3rd, that $1,100 savings was before I got an additional discount for bundling my home insurance on my policy (which is a lot lower now too).

Unfortunately, and surprisingly, 10 years of loyalty did not pay off for me, and was replaced by a 5 minute quote that will save me thousands down the road. In short, our family owns 3 cars, and my new rates are about half my old rates; so not bad for the little additional time it took to compare quotes and digitally sign a policy.

Obviously, not everyone will save nearly as much as I did, but it's well worth your 5 minutes to find out, even if you end up only saving a few hundred dollars per year, potentially adding up to thousands over a couple years."

The Best And Worst Songs To Drive To

By Aaron Crowe

Nothing gets your heart pumping like a good song. The lyrics to a Bruce Springsteen song or the pop song of the month might stay in your head all day, but the joy of listening to a fun song in the car can be expressed while you’re driving.

That could be good — making a long drive more enjoyable — or it could give you a lead foot and a speeding ticket.

Researchers in the United Kingdom found that certain songs, and certain types of songs, resulted in more accidents, and others gave drivers more concentration to be focused on the road.

The survey points out that the “golden oldies” were the most popular driving songs, and that types of music thought to have a relaxing effect on the listener didn’t lead to a more tempered driving style.

Blues fans were found to be the most likely to be caught speeding, followed by listeners to country, reggae, rap and hip hop, classical, and easy listening music.

Country music listeners were most likely to have an accident, followed by classical, easy listening, reggae, blues, and rock and pop.

Drivers who listened to talk-radio or nothing were found to be more focused on the road, with only 22% admitted to having a minor accident, compared to 78% of drivers who listen to music.

Everyone has their favorite songs to drive to, and what may lead to speeding for one person may calm another to drive slowly.

Former traffic school teacher Walter Meyer remembers hearing often the excuse from young drivers that “this really great song came on the radio and I sort of lost track of things and suddenly I was speeding,” Meyer wrote in an email.

But one of his elderly students had an interesting excuse: “It wasn’t my fault, it was Glenn Miller’s.” The song “American Patrol” came on the radio, and having grown up a Big Band fan, she couldn’t resist driving fast to the peppy song.

Meyer’s advice to his students who insisted on driving when drowsy was to avoid familiar music or music they liked that could easily lull them to sleep. He suggested listening to music they don’t know — such as rap or country — to keep them more alert and not allow them to get lost in a song they don’t know.

Music tastes are subjective, but we wanted to offer our own suggestions — with some help from music fans — for the best and worst songs to drive to. We don’t have any proof that they’ll lead to fewer accidents or speeding tickets, but they’re worth considering to either keep in the car turn them off if they come on the radio.

10 best songs to drive to

1. “Born to Run” by Bruce Springsteen. The entire album is great, and all of the songs are great to drive to, but “Born to Run” is fun to sing to and drive fast. Just don’t get caught.

2. “Should I Stay or Should I Go” by The Clash. Yes, go, but don’t drive too fast.

3. “Radar Love” by Golden Earring. Suggested by Ann Marie van den Hurk, a public relations executive, this song has a beat that catches you from the start and may give you a reason to look out for radar detectors.

4. “Beat It” by Michael Jackson. Music blog writer Fred Goodall surveyed his readers and found that this upbeat song was their favorite.

5. “Just What I Needed” by The Cars. Another song that’s easy to sing to. Jennifer Vanderslice, who suggested this song, remembers driving when she was 17 to this hit song and getting a heavy foot. She drove too fast around a curve and had to swerve to avoid hitting a car, but the rear of her car slammed into a mud hill on the other side of the road. A good memory, though her accident is a reminder to not hit the gas when a good song comes on the radio.

6. “Pump It Up” by Elvis Costello. It has nothing to do with pumping gas, but this peppy song puts Jennifer Towner, who suggested it, in a good mood while driving.

7. “25 Miles” by Edwin Starr. It’s a song about a man walking 25 miles to see his lady, but it’s still a good song about being on the road and watching the miles tick away, says fan April Whitney, an entertainment publicist at Chronicle Books.

8. “Wheel In The Sky” by Journey. Any of this band’s greatest hits are good to drive to if they’re upbeat with rolling beats, suggests John Noland, who sells car accessories.

9. “Girls Lie Too” by Terri Clark. Many country songs are good to sing to, but this one hits the spot.

10. “Movin’ Right Along,” sung by Kermit and Fozzie. This song from the first Muppet movie, as suggested by Dave Waldman, is a fun one to get the kids singing along during a road trip.

 

10 worst songs to drive to

1. “Highway to Hell” by AC/DC. Another song suggested by Goodall in his informal survey of readers. The reasons should be self-explanatory.

2. “I Can’t Drive 55” by Sammy Haggar. Another self-explanatory song that could lead to driving too fast and may not help your case if a police officer pulls you over for speeding.

3. “Pour Some Sugar on Me” by Def Leppard. The song is popular in strip clubs, but it’s not safe in the car “due to the extreme urge to throw your hair all over the place any gyrate,” says Sharon Rosenblatt. Lesson: Don’t headbang in a car.

4. “Summer In The City” by The Lovin’ Spoonful. It’s a great song, says Steve Silberberg, but any song with car horns blowing or ambulance noises is bad because drivers can mistake it for the real thing.

5. “Bat Out Of Hell” by Meat Loaf. This was the top song in the UK study cited above that led to blues music listeners to get speeding tickets.

6. “Born To Be Wild” by Steppenwolf. It’s a great song, no doubt, but it’s so good and catchy that it could lead to fast driving and accidents.

7. “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen. An excellent song but a title you don’t want to explain to an officer if you’re stopped for speeding.

8. “Beethoven’s 5th Symphony.” Classical music was cited in the UK survey as leading to minor accidents. Could it be because fans were cranking the sound so hard and driving so fast to this song that they weren’t paying attention to the road?

9. “One Piece at a Time” by Johnny Cash. You can’t beat Johnny Cash for great country music. But remember that in the UK study, country music was high in leading to accidents and speeding. This song is about a man who stole a car one piece at a time from the GM plant he worked at. Be careful not to let your singing along lead to carelessness.

10. “Are You Gonna Go My Way” by Lenny Kravitz. A strong beat that may be a little too strong for potential speeders.

That’s our list. What’s yours?
