Baltimore Car Insurance


Baltimore car insurance rates

Baltimore Inner HarborBaltimore is the nation's second-most accident-prone city, according to car insurance giant Allstate. No. 1 is Washington D.C., a few miles to the south. A Baltimore driver can expect a collision about every 5.3 years, Allstate claims data show.

They might expect a traffic citation more often. The Charm City has an extensive network of speed and red-light cameras. While the citations aren't reported to insurance companies and do not result in driver's license points, they do bring a bill when they arrive days later in the mail. Automated speeding tickets cost $40. A red light violation costs $75.

Baltimoreans pay Maryland's highest car insurance rates, double those paid by more rural areas of the state. Even across Baltimore, though, rates vary dramatically by neighborhood. Dundalk pays a third less than East Baltimore does. And in each ZIP code, one car insurance company will be much cheaper than another. That's why you shop. (You can see a ZIP code-level map of average rates for the whole city below.)
