  1. ASK ABOUT DISCOUNTS FOR VEHICLE SAFETY AND SECURITY FEATURES
    Driving a vehicle with any number of built-in safety features, such as airbags and antilock brakes, as well as security features, including anti-theft systems, may qualify you for discounts on your auto insurance premiums. Such equipped vehicles are statistically less likely to be in an accident or get stolen.
