Thornton, Colorado Car Insurance

Like many of the other most populous cities in Colorado, Thornton is part of the greater Denver metropolitan area. Prior to 1953, Thornton was nothing more than farmland, when the land was purchased and a fully planned suburban town was designed there. By 1955 Thornton had 5,500 residents and today it has more than 100,000. Although there is a town center, the community has always been suburban in nature and this is reflected by the fact that the primary industry and employment relates to retail and service industries. Today, Thornton is a fairly wealthy area and a popular part of the greater Denver metropolitan area for young families.

Although atypical, 2008 was a particularly bad year for Thornton as far as traffic accidents are concerned. Almost all the major statistics related to traffic accidents were up well above the state average in 2008. These include the number of fatal accidents, the number of vehicles involved in fatal accidents, the number of drunk drivers causing accidents, and so on. As is frequently the case with suburban communities most people drive their own cars and barely more than fifteen percent (15.9) of the resident work force actually works in the city. Most commutes to work for Thornton residents take between thirty minutes to one hour, meaning that there are a lot of people on the roads every day.

Since Thornton has become popular for new families, many residents just have the minimum liability coverage allowed by Colorado state law. This minimum level is $25,000 for one individual in one accident, $50,000 for all bodily injuries per accident and $15,000 for property damage. In Colorado legal and financial responsibility rests with the driver deemed responsible for the accident, so many drivers find it prudent to have insurance coverage significantly higher than the minimum requirements. However, as is always the case, the more coverage purchased, the more expensive it will be.
