On the way home from the Philly Auto show yesterday, we passed an accident scene. It was just a fender-bender thank goodness, but as we passed by my husband pointed out that the person responsible had been driving a brand new car, one we had just seen at the convention center. He said to me, “Oh man that really stinks”, to which I replied, “It happens.”
It’s true. No matter how skilled or attentive the driver, accidents just happen. Even to drivers with new cars, as upsetting and incovenient as that can be. Having good insurance coverage can alleviate financial concerns, but even so the situation is stressful and we don’t always know what to do next. I know whenever I’ve been involved in an accident it takes some time to get over the initial shock. I mean, we don’t get into accidents every day, do we?
That’s why State Farm created the Auto Learning Center, a one-stop resource for all matters related to auto insurance. It’s designed to help consumers get quick, easy-to-understand answers from experts and peers. The idea for this learning center came after a recent State Farm survey that was conducted about auto insurance. The results showed that people have many questions about what to do after an accident.
Whether you’re looking into safety tips, legal liability questions, or setting ground rules for your teenager, you’ll find the answer on State Farm’s site.
Due to the generosity of State Farm, one very lucky winner will receive this amazing prize pack, including:
A Garmin Nuvi 1300 4.3″ GPS Navigator – $120
