A city of nearly 108,000 residents, Burbank is located in Los Angeles County and is home to many media giants, including Cartoon Network, PBS, The Walt Disney Company, NBC Universal, Viacom, Warner Bros. Entertainment, and Warner Music Group. Nestled in the foothills of the Verdugo Mountains to the east and the San Fernando Valley to the west, Burbank is located just north of Los Angeles with easy access to Interstate Highway 5 (I-5); I-405, and State Highway 101.
While shopping for Burbank car insurance quotes, bear in mind that California State law requires that you carry a minimum of 15/30/5 insurance coverage. That's $15,000 for injury to another person; $30,000 for injury to all other persons; and $5,000 for damage to another's property. Penalties for non-compliance are severe. So insurance up! California also requires that you show proof of car insurance before obtaining a driver's license, automobile license, or registration. If you are stopped for any reason, the officer can ask to see your driver's license and insurance card. California Highway Patrol consistently enforces seat belt, DUI, and helmet laws for your safety. On the bright side, California improves your chances of passing the driver's exam by letting you take a "practice" exam. Very cool.
Burbank car insurance rates are driven by statistics. California has the highest population of any state in the U.S., so it's not surprising that it has the highest number of traffic accidents. According to the National Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS); while Los Angeles County has the highest number of fatalities in California counties, that number is down 7% as of 2008. In contrast, the number of fatalities statewide decreased by 14.1% during the same period. Keep in mind that Californians drive a lot, so, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS); the state's mileage death rate (MDR) of fatalities per 100 miles traveled is 1.5, much lower than the national MDR of 1.25. California was given the highest rating in the nation for laws pertaining to Child Restraint Use, DUI, Motorcycle Helmet Use, Red Light Cameras, Seat Belt Use, and Young Driver Licensing in a report released by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in April 2009.
Burbank is an exceptional place to live and work and California is still the number one destination in the United States. So, drive safely!
