“Increasing car insurance rates is a fairly common practice for many companies. Their analytics department might have uncovered new data that found that more drivers in your area of California are uninsured, or that the incidence of accidents has increased.
If you got into an accident or received a citation in your previous policy term, then this would also explain why your rates nearly tripled.
If you’re looking for cheap car insurance, you can shop for quotes online to find something that’s better for your budget. As a general rule, don’t go for the state-minimum liability coverage, as this typically won’t fully cover expenses in a more severe accident.”
