It is no secret that Florida drivers pay the highest auto insurance rates in the country. During the 2024 legislative session, lawmakers can make better and less costly auto insurance the standard in Florida by passing commonsense reforms.
A Forbes analysis puts the average for Floridians at $4,326 per car annually for full coverage, or $361 per month. The national annual average for full coverage is $2,118, according to Forbes. In other words, Florida drivers pay more than twice the national average.
The Florida Legislature can make auto insurance cheaper — and better — this session, and the time to act is now.
