The city of West Covina, California, located in Los Angeles County, has a strange yet inspiring history. Formally incorporated in 1923, the city of West Covina was at one point a part of the city of Covina. The city of Covina wanted to build a sewage farm on the area of land that now serves as West Covina and the public was not happy with the plan. They separated from Covina, incorporated as their own city, and began building a strong agricultural following, growing walnuts, oranges, and other crops. Over time the city evolved into a suburban area and only 10% of the land remains undeveloped.
In terms of size, West Covina is a mid-range city, spanning across only 16.2 square miles. West Covina is the home to several large, well-known corporations, including Regal Entertainment and Ford. Located about 10 miles away from Pomona and 5 miles away from El Monte, it is estimated that more than 105,000 people call West Covina home. Levels of property crime and violent crime in the West Covina area are routinely estimated to be lower than other areas of California.

California isn't unique in its requirement for all drivers to have automobile insurance. The state minimum level of bodily injury liability coverage is $15,000 per person and $30,000 per accident with a minimum level of property damage liability coverage set at $30,000. Uninsured motorist coverage, underinsured motorist coverage, comprehensive coverage, and collision coverage are all available but are not considered mandatory. California is unique in that the state now offers two types of automobile insurance programs. You can obtain a traditional West Covina auto insurance quote, offering a premium rate for an annual policy, or you can choose to obtain a quote for the newer "pay as you go" plan. This new plan allows drivers to pay a reduced premium based on the mileage they drive each year. If you go over your mileage you'll have to pay the balance at the end of your policy term but if you calculate properly you could potentially save quite a bit of money.
