Labor Day a Great Time to Review Your Auto Policy
By John D. Doak, Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner
This Labor Day 386,000 Oklahomans are expected to hit the road to have fun and visit family and friends. While it can be a great time to catch up with loved ones, the influx of travelers raises the risk of an auto accident. Law enforcement also expects a rise in the number of drunk drivers. Given those two factors, now is a great time to make sure you’re properly insured.
Do not wait until you need to file a claim before evaluating your coverage. By understanding your policies, you can be prepared for any situation and, potentially, save money by avoiding unnecessary costs.

Here is one other important element to remember: Throughout the year, you may encounter changes in employment, salary, geographic location and/or family dynamics. These factors affect your insurance options and the amount of coverage you need. Any time your life situation changes, be sure to review your insurance coverage and make any necessary adjustments. If you have any questions, the Oklahoma Insurance Department is happy to help. Just call our Consumer Assistance Team at 1-800-522-0071.
