This would be a really short article if we could tell you the one company that has the lowest rates in California. Regrettably, it's not quite that easy, as there are a whole bunch of unknown aspects like the neighborhood you live in, the number of miles you drive each year, and whether or not you have had gaps between policies, that help determine the price you have to pay. The information below covers some of these criteria and will hopefully give the reader some help in finding cheaper rates.
For drivers with at-fault accidents, one of the big components that are looked at to determine the amount you pay each year for auto insurance is where you keep your vehicle. Cities with more crime and/or more people tend to pay slightly more, whereas areas with lower crime rates and fewer weather claims have the gratification of cheaper auto insurance rates.
The next table ranks the highest-priced places in California for drivers with accidents to purchase auto insurance in. Chula Vista is ranked #25 with the annual price of $1,298 for car insurance, which is about $108 each month.

The diagram below illustrates how choosing a deductible can change insurance rates when quoting cheap insurance for drivers with accidents. The data is based on a single male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, and no discounts are factored in.
A 30-year-old driver could lower their car insurance rates by $568 a year by changing their physical damage coverage from a $100 deductible to a $500 deductible, or save $856 by choosing a $1,000 deductible. Even younger drivers, like the Age 20 chart data, have the ability to save $1,674 every year by choosing a larger deductible amount.
