Can my car insurance company find out about a speeding ticket I got out of state?
I live in Maine and have car insurance there, but I got a speeding ticket in New Jersey while visiting family. Is it possible for my insurer to find out about the ticket?

“Yes, it’s possible for your Maine insurance company to find out about your new Jersey speeding ticket. If the New Jersey DMV reports the ticket to Maine, your insurance company can find out.
If this happens, you can expect to face a rate increase for three years. In Maine, car insurance premiums rise by over $200 per year on average after a speeding ticket.”

How much car insurance do I really need for an old Ford Escort?
I have a 1998 Ford Escort with 144,000 miles. I am 27. I had two speeding tickets when I was 19 and no accidents. I have liability, PIP, uninsured motorist, comprehensive, and collision with GEICO. I pay $128 a month. What coverage do I need to keep and what can I remove?
