The fact is that sometimes life in the fast lane isn't all that fast on Alberta roads, but what do the Alberta Traffic Laws say about this. We took a closer look at the Alberta Traffic Safety Act to uncover some Rules of the Road when it comes to slow moving vehicles.

On September 1, 2011 Alberta became the first province in Canada to write a law that addresses distracted driving and cell phone use.

How the Make of Your Car Affects Your Car Insurance

Posted by Rob Marusin on Aug 28, 2012 10:00:00 AM

Your neighbour drives a BMV M Roadster, while you get around in a sporty 2000 Honda Civic SiR. You both have clean driving records and travel the same distance to work. The BMV is worth more than the Civic, and then the shock comes—you’re paying more for auto insurance. Consumers are left asking why—well, the answer is clear.

Every vehicle make, model and year available in Canada is rated according to the Canadian Loss Experience Automobile Rating (CLEAR) system. This rating system assesses each type of vehicle based on expected claims frequency and cost, and the likelihood the vehicle will be stolen. This assists in calculating insurance rates—the lower the claims risk, the lower the rates, and the higher the claims risk, the higher the rates.

Kids Going Away to School? Review Your Edmonton Insurance Policy

Posted by Rob Marusin on Aug 22, 2012 9:18:00 AM

When your child moves away from home for college or university, there are important changes and responsibilities to consider. Along with the emotional stress of having your young graduate leave home, you also need to consider what the move means for your finances and insurance policies. Being informed about your Edmonton insurance coverage is crucial for your child’s protection and wellbeing. While many policies extend parents’ coverage to kids in university, other policies encourage college students to purchase their own insurance.

“Parents need to know whether their insurance extends to their children when they are buying a car or moving into an apartment or residence,” says Wayne Ross, insurance expert at Aviva Canada. “You could find yourself facing a financially-stressful situation that could easily have been avoided.”
