“California’s Proposition 103 (enacted in 1988) made it illegal for companies to charge excessive rates for car insurance.
Accident forgiveness—which is an additional coverage option that keeps your rates from increasing after your first accident in which you are at fault—falls under this proposition because you may pay an excessive rate for this benefit. “
