We wanted to know if it was true and contacted the Nevada Division of Insurance and we were told that information is totally incorrect, that there is no information from the acting Insurance Commissioner, Amy Parks, that all premiums in Nevada should be raised. The company in question is Geico.
After a day and a half trying to contact them every hour (believe it or not) because every other hour they claimed that their computers were down and they could not access any information, except for claims, (ironic, isn’t it?) All we wanted to know was why their rates have been raised.
After lots of efforts we finally made contact with Jarold, who told us that they were forced to raise their premiums because of the number of claims from the State of Nevada. I am sure they have plenty of claims from Nevada, especially from the City of Las Vegas, but whose fault is it?
It is nothing but Geico’s fault. They continue to insure people with out of the country driver’s licenses. What proof does Geico have of that person ‘s driver’s records? NONE whatsoever.
There are hundreds of people who have purchased a driver’s license in their country or at the flee market here in Las Vegas when they have never driven an automobile in their entire life.
They learned to put the car in drive and forget to learn the traffic signals; many of them don’t even know the English language. Ah! But they do have a driver’s license from their supposed country and an
insurance policy from Geico.
One claim after the other, but who pays the consequences? All of us who respect traffic signals driving in our city for years without even a parking ticket. It is about time for Geico to check the records of those people, request information about their driver’s license, how long they have been driving and if they have had any prior accidents.
Geico needs to understand that the Department of Motor Vehicle s has no record of foreign licenses and the majority of the time their vehicles are not even registered in the State of Nevada. If those people get involved in an accident it would be like looking for a needle in a haystack, but who pays the consequences?
The one with a valid driver’s license, a registered vehicle and an insurance policy that would go up, up and up, because insurance companies would raise your premium even if you are not at fault. Every company wants to grab the easy money, but please not from the good drivers and innocent people of the State of Nevada.
