NEW YORK (OCN) — John and Mary were married in November and weeks later, he added Mary to his Auto Insurance. While going to separate jobs on one snowy morning in December, Mary rams John in the rear with her car due to ice and the two cars now have damage. So what is going to happen when they file a claim? Our experts gives us a peek into what will happen.
As long as both cars have collision coverage, they have two collision claims, with two collision deductibles. Mary, obviously, will get a surcharge for an at fault accident.
Why is that? well, Property damage doesn’t apply, as the FULL wording of that coverage is, “property damage to OTHERS”, and it doesn’t cover property damage that you do to another car that you own.
So what do you think? I think the couple should get the estimates for repairs FIRST, then subtract out both deductibles, and seriously consider not reporting this accident at all to their insurance company.
NEW YORK (OCN) — Going broke? Do you want to change the replenish amount for your EZ-Pass? Well, the only way to change it is to change your driving habits.
After the account has been established for 35 days, replenishment amounts are re-evaluated every 90 days and adjusted, if necessary, to reflect current use patterns. Replenishment amounts are calculated to equal one month of average use, based on use over the previous 90 days. Replenishment amounts can vary and timing of replenishment is not always consistent.
* Put down a deposit (US$10.00) and make one-time payments.
* Make micro payments BEFORE you reach your limit.
* Use different EZ-Pass accounts (.ie personal, Uber/Lyft, work)
* Carpool, drive less, mass transit, pay cash.

NEW YORK (OCN) — Did you know that fifteen (15) feet or five (5) meters is the rule in New York for parking near fire hydrants in New York? It does not matter how long or short the paint is on the curb.
If two (2) vehicles were parked on either end of the hydrant, there should be at least thirty (30) feet or ten (10) meters in between them so that 24 foot long fire truck can park safely. The size of a fire truck is not standardized although a lot of American fire trucks are at least 24 ft long. The height is around 12 ft. The maximum height limit is 13 ft 6 inches. The width of a fire truck is from 7 to 8 feet.
Since the fire truck is that wide, you should never double park as you will slow down their time to respond to an emergency.
