Is it true that driving less than 50 miles a day means you pay less for car insurance?
I've started working remotely so I drive less than I used to — I don't go above 50 miles a day. Does this mean I can pay less for insurance?

The annual mileage, or the distance that you drive in a year, is a factor that can affect your insurance premium, but it is one of many factors. Generally, the fewer miles that are driven, the less likely it is for the vehicle to be involved in an accident. There isn’t a daily cut-off that every carrier uses, but generally 3,000 to 5,000 miles per year is the lowest rating category.
Many insurance companies request mileage information at policy renewals to more accurately determine the vehicle usage. You should reach out to your insurance agent once your commute or vehicle usage changes so that your policy can be updated.

Is $200 a month too much for full coverage on my 2019 Ford Explorer?
I'm 22 and my parents recently kicked me off their insurance to teach me responsibility. I was shopping around for full coverage, as that's what I had before, and the cheapest I can find is $200 a month. Is that too much?
