Like in many parts of Texas, road construction in and around Grapevine seems to be never ending. But what’s the problem with all of the construction (besides increased time it takes to get anywhere) and what does it have to do with auto insurance rates?
Several years ago, the DFW Connector project began in Grapevine as a project to connect and help the various heavily congested highways flow smoothly. This project, surprisingly moved relatively quickly due to adequate resources, and while the main part of the construction was done in a timely manner, improvements are still being made to this day.
In addition to the temporary slowing of traffic in the construction zone…it’s also the fact that construction zones that are constantly changing. There is no chance for familiarity to develop around the routes because the traffic flow changes constantly. When traffic flow is always changing, the chances of auto accidents increases. Then you throw in drivers that are unfamiliar with the area in the first place – a recipe for disaster!
It’s not just the construction though. New technology available in cars makes the costs of repairs increase with every year. Just a small fender bender now results in the need to replace or readjust sensors in addition to the regular physical repair of the car’s body.
In the Grapevine area, cars tend to be of a higher value than other areas in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. That means the chances of you being involved in an accident with a high valued car is greater as you drive through Grapevine and it’s neighboring cities. Higher value cars means higher costs to repair.
With all of this to consider, it’s no wonder that auto Insurance rates have been on the rise lately.
