What Makes Alaska Auto Insurance Different Than Other States?

The beautiful state of Alaska provides a unique environment for vehicles and driving. For many months of the year the state is cold and covered in snow which offers challenges that other states don't. Most drivers in the state are used to the snow pack and icy conditions but that doesn't mean accidents don't happen. In fact many times accidents occur because of animals on the road or damages to vehicles by animals.

The auto insurance companies will not increase your premiums due to an animal related accident or damage done by animals. You will be subject to your deductible if you want to repair your vehicle but the rate will not increase because of it. Most of the vehicle to vehicle accidents occur in urban areas where the population is much greater. There are approximately 6,500 traffic accidents each year in Alaska which may be more than most expect.

This filing is normally required for a period of 3 years but may be longer depending on your court order. Reference our SR22 insurance page for more details about SR-22 forms.
