What should I do after my Honda Odyssey was hit in a parking lot?
A truck hit my Odyssey in a mall parking lot and my license plate broke off. The other driver has offered to pay for repairs out of pocket. I don't want my insurance to go up. What should I do?

“Your car insurance rate is unlikely to go up since the truck driver is at fault in this situation. So whatever you decide, you can rest easy.
If the other driver is willing to pay out of pocket and you know of a good repair shop that can fix the damage to your Honda, then you can settle this accident privately.
However, if the other driver changes their mind and doesn’t want to pay for the repairs, you’ll have to contact their insurance company to fix the damage.”

Who's at fault after I was rear-ended at an intersection?
When I approached an intersection, the traffic light turned red and I had to come to a quick stop, though I didn't slam on my brakes. A van behind me didn't stop in time and rear-ended my car. Both vehicles were scraped up, though the van got the worst of it. Who's at fault in this collision?

Can I put my auto insurance policy under my mom's name for a better rate?
I have been paying for my and my mother's insurance for the past five years. We decided to shop for a new auto policy. We noticed that if we put the policy under her name, the price goes down drastically. Can we just put it under her name? And why is it so much cheaper for her?
