Drinking and driving in Nashville
In 2013 alone, Nashville's DUI Unit arrested more than 1,300 motorists suspected of driving under the influence. Davidson County, home to Nashville and smaller surrounding areas, saw 66 fatal crashes in 2012 with nearly one-third of those crashes involving an impaired driver.
Positive patterns in car theft
The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department reported a 13 percent decrease in motor vehicle theft from 2012 to 2013 — dropping from 1,387 thefts in 2012 to 1,206 in 2013. Not only does this mean an all-around safer environment for everyone, but it can also affect how much drivers in your area pay for car insurance (in a good way!).
Still, thefts do happen. Luckily, a reliable auto insurance policy equipped with comprehensive coverage can help pay for your ride's repair or replacement if it ever gets stolen, vandalized, or falls victim to a number of other hazards not under your control.
