    Yeah you can do a lot better switching from Progressive. I was with them for quite a few years starting out and then they went through the roof a few years ago. Besides, I wanted to add haz mat capability and they don’t do haz.

    Didn’t realize Soros has to do with them too. That’s enough in itself.

    Shoot, maybe I'm going off hearsay but I would have sworn Soros has something to do with Progressive. I am researching about it now, but regardless I am unhappy with the constant roughly $1k per year rate hike. I don't see the justification for it. My CSA score is a perfect 1 according to the Louisiana trooper who did my last inspection, & I have no tickets or incidents of any kind. Should be going down, or bare minimum at least staying the same..

    Can someone provide a Soros connection to Progressive Insurance? They are a publicly traded company and I couldn't find any fund or connection of Soros with them.

    Maybe this is one of those, "I read it on the internet somewhere, so it must be true?"

    Haz insurance is pretty outrageous. Be prepared to pay and last I heard. About 5X more. But I"ve learned to not beleive the boss's. It's not cheap though.

    Yeah sorry. I've been looking & can only find hearsay about the Soros connection. Crap like is son in law works there, possibly a CEO, but really nothing substantial. I shouldn't have said anything without being 100% sure..:argue:

    Not too bad- youre in the Finger lakes region- No big Cities ot major crime Rings/Theft.

    I'm in the Chicagoland Area- $5600.00 per year- But then again,No Claims,accidents or tickets , 780 credit score and 28 years of service.

    Best I've seen lately? Friend of mine in his 60's now, Authority holder since 1984, $4700 per year
    Does things very old fashioned (Which is Good) Drives locally in the Tristate region(In,Il,Wi)
    150 mile radius, He never goes past 55 mph, And Takes the Time to be a friend to everyone in the trucking community. Never in a hurry, And Doesn't Rely on E-anything (Electronics).

    It doesn';t get much better than a guy like him.

    I have Birkshire Hathaway. I'm in LV and pay around 13K a year. Nevada is horrible for insurance. I did some research and found that Mississippi has pretty cheap insurance.
