Insure responsibly. Others might not.
Dallas County has a very high rate of uninsured drivers — 16 percent of its motorists lacked coverage as of 2013, more than any other urban area in Texas. This means nearly 1 in 6 people is driving irresponsibly, which might leave you feeling a tad vulnerable.
For extra peace of mind, consider adding uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage to your Dallas auto insurance. If you're involved in an accident caused by an uninsured/underinsured driver, this coverage can help with injury or property damage bills.
Be picky about your pump
The Dallas-Fort Worth area has one of the costliest commutes in the nation. Sitting in congested traffic costs its average commuter just shy of $1,000 in wasted time and fuel per year, according to a 2012 report by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute.
Luckily, Dallas commuters can take back at least some control of their spending at the pump with Fuelcaster™. This Esurance tool helps you know when and where to find the lowest fuel prices in your city.
