Why Does ANYONE Do This?

We have been candid and completely forthright with our thoughts about TEXTING and DRIVING or DISTRACTED DRIVING!  One action IS NOT worth the results of what can happen when you are behind a wheel of a car or riding with someone driving who gets distracted.

AT&T has come forward with their “IT CAN WAIT!” campaign and it’s eye-opening to say the least.  I’ll say no more and let this following video speak for us and so many others in saying: “IS IT WORTH IT!?”

 

Insurance rates are already being affected by distracted driving claims.  In the future, auto insurance rate increases could be mostly based on these unfortunate events that could cost you your life or the life of someone you love.  Let’s hope more can be done to prevent future occurrences of these events happening.  Life is a gift and too special to be wasted away with a 1 or 2 second glance away from the road to read something on a phone that certainly can wait until you or we stop driving. 

Feel free to EMAIL us at info@BentonWhite.com or TEXT or CALL – 615.377.1212 if we can help you with your insurance.  We’re here to encourage you to stay safe and we’re always ready to earn your business!

Homeowners Insurance!  Do You Have Enough Coverage?

We have coverage discussions on two levels most often here in the insurance agency. From the customer: “I’m not sure I have enough coverage on my home or on my property.  How much is enough?” From the insurance company: “You just wrote a new home insurance policy for one of your insured’s and our walk-around inspection indicates the dwelling value amount is too low.” It’s been interesting determining dwelling values over the last couple of years simply because, as the video below will...
