Another example of not drinking and driving... call an Uber or a Lyft... and stay safe!!
Safe driving is nothing to joke about.
Here is a video from a recent crash caught on traffic camera at Northland and Richmond. The driver was injured but, treated and released. The driver was arrested for several traffic violations including OWI 1st Offense and Reckless Driving-Endangering Safety. Thankfully no one else was hurt.

This is a NEW and updated airbag recall... and it appears that this is ongoing. Check to see if your vehicles are involved at nhtsa.gov/recalls, for not only this recall; but also any other recalls your vehicle could be involved in.
Subaru, Tesla and five other car manufacturers will replace potentially lethal inflators from Takata
UPDATE FOR WEDNESDAY JANUARY 30TH...
Due to the weather conditions forecasted, our offices will be closed. If there is anything of immediate assistance I can help you with, please call my main number. I will be monitoring things as closely as possible from home.
Stay safe, stay warm... and if at all possible, stay home!!
If you want to be successful... just follow the formula below.
[01/01/19] To my friends, family, clients, and colleagues... thank you for an amazing 2018! Happy new year!! I look forward to seeing and working with you all in 2019!!

[12/05/18] I saw a sign stating "OWI task force deployed this weekend. Drive sober." It's sad when it takes a task force and a sign to remind us drinking and driving are bad things. #Uber is $25 or so... call and stay safe.
Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours. It's a great time to reflect on our blessings and spend time with friends and family.
I will be spending my time with my family, and will return to the office Monday morning.
Thanks again and have an amazing Thanksgiving weekend!

An early reminder for tomorrow...

Want a scary Halloween FACT... about 50% of Americans have no idea what their home insurance covers or how it works... meaning half of the people you know (and possibly even you) could pay tens of thousands out of pocket in a loss, due to being underinsured or insured incorrectly.
insurance.com Insurance.com surveyed 1,000 homeowners to find out how much they know about their home insurance policy and if they shop for the best rates. Turns out, many homeowners don’t understand how their home insurance coverage works.
I originally posted this 2 years ago... unfortunately since that time, it has only gotten worse!!
So I get this question pretty frequently...
"Why do car insurance rates keep going up?"
It is a great question that needs some explanation.
The most simple explanation, is that there are more cars on the road, driving more miles than ever before. As of 2014, there were 253 MILLION cars on US roads... and increase of more than 3.7 million from just the year before. AND, we drive more miles now too... OVER 3.1 TRILLION miles in 2015... an increase of over 100 BILLION miles from 2014.
Why does that matter...? In Wisconsin alone, almost 15% of the drivers carry no auto insurance. In the US, that number is almost 14%... meaning there are 35.4 MILLION uninsured vehicles driving 43.4 BILLION miles each year. This costs insured drivers and their insurance companies close to $11 BILLION in uninsured expenses each year.
To make matters worse, the average cost to repair a car has gone up about 10% nationwide (from 2011-2012)... and in 40 years from 1972 to 2012, went from an average of $400 to $4000. AND this doesn't include the rising cost of medical expenses when you get injured by that uninsured driver.
Add all of these factors and risks together... and you get insurance companies raising rates; just to make sure they can keep up with costs.
This is from a few years back... but the statistics really haven't changed much. It's some great information; and very easy for all of us to take simple steps to make sure this doesn't happen to us.
Interesting stats of the day...
**In 2014, almost 700,000 vehicles were stolen... that's one every 43 seconds.
**The cost to consumers and insurance companies is over $4.5 BILLION A YEAR... and affects everyone's insurance rates as a result (this accounts for approximately 9% of your yearly auto insurance cost).
**The odds of your vehicle being stolen... 1 in 196.
**Less than 15% of cars stolen are recovered and cleared (meaning returned back to the owners).
**A National Insurance Crime Bureau survey found that 1/3 of people leave their car running and unoccupied (and typically unlocked... 40% leave valuables in the vehicle in plain sight... 60% leave their car doors unlocked, normally in their garage; and frequently with their keys (and a lot of times valuables) still in it.
Remember to take some simple steps next time you get out of your car; and you can help make sure you don't become a victim of the above stats.
Great day to support March of Dimes!
[08/28/18] **If you have damage from these storms... contact your insurance agent FIRST! Be careful of hiring a person or company on Facebook... and make 100% sure they are licensed and insured before you sign any work agreements. Without it... your insurance company may not cover it and it could affect your future insurance coverage if not done appropriately by a licensed and insured professional.**
[08/03/18] How do insurance agents unwind... listen to some great music!!

Our friends at Johnson Bank on College Avenue are getting in on the fun of Children's Week! Kids can stop in for treats or bring their piggy bank in and they will let them run the coin machine! If a minor opens an account they will be placed in a drawing to win a cute art basket!
