“I would like to recognize the leadership recently demonstrated by some of Michigan’s auto insurance companies, many of which have pledged to refund a portion of premiums during this pandemic. Socially responsible citizens obeying “stay at home” orders have resulted in fewer cars on the road, fewer vehicle collisions and lower costs for auto insurance providers. My community not only pays some of the highest rates in the state but is also one of the hardest hit by COVID-19. Reducing premiums during this crisis is a show of good faith that will go a long way toward providing economic relief to Michiganders struggling to pay their bills after losing their livelihood through no fault of their own. I am hopeful that this spirit of cooperation can continue beyond this crisis and make rates more equitable in the future.”
