Driving conditions in Pittsburgh

The southwestern entrance into downtown from Interstate 79 is via the Fort Pitt Tunnel and the Fort Pitt Bridge, which become congested during rush hours, as do the numerous “parkways,” as freeways are called by locals, leading in and out of downtown. According to the U.S. Census Bureau's 2014 American Community Survey, Pittsburgh has an average commute time of 25 minutes, compared to an average commute time for the 50 largest U.S. metros of 27.2 minutes.

Unique laws in Pittsburgh

Pennsylvania laws regular vehicle modifications such as frame and bumper height, depending on the type of vehicle and its weight. However, no vehicle may be taller than 13 feet, 6 inches. “Off-road lights” must be covered and not used when driving on roadways. One outdated Pennsylvania law states that “any motorist driving along a country road at night must stop and send up a rocket signal, wait 10 minutes for the road to be cleared of livestock” before continuing. In Pittsburgh, it is still technically illegal to bring a donkey or a mule onto a trolley car.

Pittsburgh crime statistics

Car thefts in Pittsburgh have generally declined over the past decade, the Pittsburgh Police Department reports. Its 2015 vehicle theft rate was just over 74 incidents per 100,000 residents, compared to the national average of 220.2 incidents per 100,000 people, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau. According to Pittsburgh Police Department data, neighborhoods with the highest rates of vehicle theft are within the East End, North Shore and South Side. The department also reports that victims of car thefts are often older than average crime victims and are disproportionately African-American and male.

Pittsburgh safety requirements

Children under 4 must be in a safety seat, and those under 2 must be rear-facing. Children between 4 and 8 must ride in an approved booster seat, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. Drivers, front-seat passengers and anyone under 18 must wear a seat belts, though tickets won't be issued unless you are pulled over for another violation. Also, Pennsylvania has banned all texting while driving.

    My wife and I have been working with Eric since we first bought renters insurance. We now have home, 2 auto, boat, and camper coverages. Prices were the best we found. His ability to help over the phone is wonderful. I have sent several new clients his way, and they all report positive results.

    This guy will hide significant details about your policy!! My policy went up 250% (from about $400 to about $1100) after submitting a 10K claim for smoke damage. I was never told that a percentage of my claim would be put back into my yearly premium. When I challenged Eric on it, he hung up on me and refused to take any calls from me. Go with somebody local, so you can see them face to face if there is an issue.

    I'm so glad I finally went to Maggs Agency. They did in a couple weeks what AAA couldn't do for me in two months.

    I had gone to AAA twice for title transfering and MV forms, and phoned a few times, without too much success in getting my PA registration on a newly-purchased out-of-state vehicle started. My trade-in title was in my deceased husband's name, so there were a few problems between the Delaware dealership, DE DMV and PA.

    Donna was very helpful, professional, and courteous, and got the job done for me, with their online and messenger services, and acting as liaison for me with the dealership.

  • John J Laquatra


    191 Beall Dr
    Pittsburgh, PA 15236
    Visit Agent Website


    Before joining with Nationwide, I had a seething hate for all insurance companies due to multiple bad experiences while in my 20's. I served time with State Farm, Allstate and even those bargain-basement basic insurance companies. I finally joined NW when my fiance' (now wife) recommended them. Her Dad, a Farmer has been a member for over 30 years and his father before him as well as other family members. Skeptical, I joined and had the privilege of meeting one John Laquatra. His down-home and old-fashioned way of doing business was refreshing and I didn't feel like I needed to take a shower after shaking his hand. He is one of the most genuine people I've ever met and has never accepted anything short of going above and beyond to assist my family in all our insurance needs. Here's one example:
    While building a garage at my new house, we experienced a torrential rainstorm as we are often known to here in SW PA. My BMW was parked on a slight hill at just the right angle to absorb the rain into the main computer, essentially killing my car. John came to the rescue. The car was towed to the dealer where it was bought (and no longer under warranty) and when they refused to replace the part to honor a recall I was unaware of, other Nationwide Insurance agents immediately ensured me I had nothing to worry about and that they'd take care of it and deal with the dealership directly. They did. Two weeks later, I had my car back with a new computer and running like a champ again. The cost was $2800.00 and that was just labor. The dealership was forced to honor the recall and only the deductible came out of my pocket. In fact the whole process was so painless, I never had to call anyone but John the day it happened. That was 7 years ago and still they continue to impress me. Did my insurance rates go up? Not a penny. If you're looking for an agent, look no further than John Laquatra and Nationwide. As once was said to me, ""You won't be dissappointed."" So true.

  • Tom Sterling

    I've never met Tom Sterling as, from my experience, you rarely if ever meet the actual agent in a State Farm office. But, the office personnel are not very friendly. I have dealt with one person, Christine I believe, who was very helpful and nice. However, even if I call to talk to her and have to get transferred through someone else, my call is always handled as a nuisance. There is often hostility in the voices of the people who answer and I have been treated as an unnecessary interruption. I do not mean that I call to complain either. When I recently called to have the declaration page for my renter's insurance faxed to the rental office where I live, the tone and shortness I experienced from the person who answered the phone was astounding. When I asked if it could be faxed I was told (with annoyance) that it would be faxed but not the same day. Everyone gets busy. But if I pay my insurance and need proof of that insurance for my living arrangements, I feel like taking 2 minutes to fax something should not be treated as a burden. The previous office I was associated with was wonderful (Mary Cath Herforth in Monroeville). I never experienced anything like what I have experienced at this office. Shortly after transferring offices (because we moved out of the area of Mary Cath), we made an appointment to meet with someone. When we came in for the appointment, one person literally rolled their eyes and pointed to "upstairs" where we needed to go. We basically wondered around until we found the right office. Overall, I would not recommend this office due to the rude way with which customers are handled.

    I have lived in many different states and areas of Pa. throughout my career and have moved back to Pittsburgh many times. I have never dealt with a better agent throughout my moves. I have all the correct insurance at my stage of life due to Vince Profeta. All my children have insurance thru his agency due to the professionalism and how Vince has handled all of our claims. I would reccomend Vince Profeta and his Allstate agency to anyone, and have including my mother and brothers and sisters.

    My agent is considerate of my needs and frequently reviews my policies to make sure I have exactly what I need for my home, auto and life insurance. All of my children also have all all our policies with Allstate because we know we are well taken care of.

Did you know ?

Swapping your high heels for a pair of driving shoes can help you qualify for cheap car insurance by avoiding accidents and getting "safer driver" discounts.

Safety Tip

It is easier to get cheap car insurance with a car that has high safety rating than one without one.

Savings Tip

When you are looking for cheap car insurance, ask if the insurance company offers a policy where they forgive the first accident.
