The rip-off car insurance rates must stop in Florida. WE NEED TO COMPLAIN to the FL Legislature. If we push the auto insurance problem and the home owner's insurance problems, they will have to do something.

Florida is now the 6th most expensive State in the country to insure an automobile. It costs Floridians 36% more to insure a car today than just four years ago.

Give us a break!

Next Tuesday, January 16th, the Florida Legislature is meeting to discuss Florida's insurance rate crisis. Make sure they address the skyrocketing automobile insurance rates along with the home owner's insurance. Contact your representatives today and tell them...

"I'm Mad About Auto Insurance Rates" & "I am even madder about my home owner's insurance rates"!

Demand action... Call your Representatives today to let them know want lower auto insurance rates. If you just keep quite, nothing will get done. I am posting this here for you folks, I am out of FL in April.

Here is how you find the people you need to DEMAND (do not ask, demand it) action:

1. Florida Governor Charlie Crist: (850) 488-7146 or email to Charlie.Crist@MyFlorida.com

2. Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink: (850) 413-3100 or email to Alex.Sink@MyFlorida.com

3. Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio: (850) 488-1450 or email to Speaker@MyFloridaHouse.gov

4. Senate President Ken Pruitt: (850) 487-5088 or email to Pruitt.Ken.web@ flsenate.gov

5. Find your local State Senator at: http://www.floridagovernmentonline.com/topic/293

6. Find your local State Representative at: http://www.floridagovernmentonline.com/topic/733

I would guess that if you live in a highly populated Fla. city, car insurance could be quite expensive. I did a search on what it will cost to insure our two vehicles in Fla. Would you believe it's a few dollars LESS then it costs us to insure them in the upper midwest? Also, the population of our city is just under 15,000.

When we moved to FL from DC, we were shocked that our car insurance was so much higher than DC. When we asked our ins. agent why, he said because Florida is the scam capital of the world. Possibly so, but why make the drivers pay for this?

Buy your car insurance from the same company that sells you your homeowner's insurance. At least you have a little leverage if they threaten to cancel your HO insurance.
