Alternative New Mexico car insurance options
Some high-risk drivers may have difficulty finding auto insurance through normal means, and may consider obtaining coverage through a "non-standard" insurance company. Non-standard insurance companies are more likely to cover a driver with high risk factors, such as previous accidents or serious driving violations. These insurance companies also tend to charge higher premiums.
