Re: If you get 'performance award'...
Here's what will work:
Got a performance award, paid it and a couple of months later the insurance agent called and said she was going to have to increase our cost because of the ticket. I finally had enough and asked if this was a requirement, a law or were they allowed by some law. She finally told me they were allowed, not required. Informed her that I might move a little fast at times, I have never had a chargeable accident or claim.
I then informed her that if she increased my rates, I would take my insurance business elsewhere. She go a little mad and told me that wherever I went, they would be charging me at the higher rate due to the ticket. I told her that I had no doubt they would do just that but seeing as I was also bringing my home owners policy and business liability along with it, they would probably be nice enough to over look the little performance award that started this conversation. Informed her that I would be watching my bill and if there was an increase, I'm going elsewhere, said goodbye and hung up. My rates stayed the same.
When the ticket points expired, I went with a different insurance agent.
