    Seems that the auto insurance companies stand to make plenty of profit off the change in driving ... if premiums remain the same and people essentially stop driving ...

    Anyone have any success reducing their auto premiums for the next 6 weeks ?

    The way I see it ... wife and I now work from home for the next 6 weeks and we now drive one of our four vehicles. Truck pretty much sits idle as gun clubs and golf course sit idle. Not sure I should go scouting ...

    Last remaining kid at home is stuck here. No school and job (gone for 6 weeks). Just dropping him and putting his vehicle in the garage for 6 weeks would save us a couple $100.

    Heck I would even take all the savings and give it to my church community resource center.

    You can drop insurance, anything that still has a lien you can get garage insurance. Covers it if it were to get damaged while parked.

    Several states require you to have at least liability on any vehicle that is registered, so might need to drop registration also.

    I don't think it's worth the hassle except for a teen driver.

    I suspect that when you go to reinsure they will raise your rates.

    How do you know a meteor won't fall from the sky and hit your car?

    1 million unemployment claims this week. How many do you suppose will miss paying their insurance? No sense insuring a car that is going to get repo’d.

    Insurance won't cover that regardless

    Some states require you to send in your license plate when you drop your insurance so you might want to check there

    Yeah but with this new bill a lot of people will be bringing home
    more than they made working Michigan is something like $382/wk for unemployment. Tack in this $600/wk and that’s $982/wk tax free for not working. Some will lose money but A LOT will be making much more. Let’s just hope they **** it away back into the economy.
