Consumer Group Calls on Oregon Legislature to Institute Fairness in Auto Insurance

The price Oregon auto insurance companies charge to a 35-year-old female driver with a safe record is 11.4% higher than is charged for the same coverage to male drivers, according to new research by the Consumer Federation of America (CFA). Using data from 10 of the largest insurers in Oregon representing over 75% of the auto insurance market, CFA also determined that a driver with a poor credit rating will be charged 113% more than the exact same safe driver if that driver had excellent credit.
