Is a friend of mine who drives because I'm tired legally covered by my car insurance?
I've read that a driver can be covered by my car insurance policy if I'm too tired to drive. Is that correct?

“Most car insurance policies have a “”permissive use”” clause, which covers other drivers for occasional use of your vehicle. This means that though the person isn’t technically on your policy, they can drive your car on occasion, provided that you give them permission.
Keep in mind that this clause isn’t on all car insurance policies, but it’s definitely on most of them. It’s worth reaching out to your car insurance provider just to make certain.”

Do cars with top safety ratings qualify for discounted insurance?

Will my car insurance rates still go up after I started a claim and then decided to settle out of pocket?
I got in a car accident and filed a claim with Allstate. The other driver and I later decided to settle damages out of pocket instead. I dropped my claim, but will it still have an impact on my premium?
