COLUMBUS, Ohio (November 8, 2007) - SafeAuto Insurance Co. has entered Missouri in a move to attract drivers looking to comply with the state's minimum-coverage laws.

The Columbus-based insurer on Thursday began offering coverage in the state. Missouri law requires all drivers to carry minimum liability coverage for at least $25,000 per person, $50,000 per accident and $10,000 for property damage along with uninsured motorists coverage requirements.

In addition to not requiring uninsured motorists coverage, Ohio's per-person and accident liability minimums are half as high as Missouri's.

SafeAuto's expansion to Missouri brings the insurer's footprint to 14 states. Just five years ago, the insurer offered minimum-insurance coverage in half as many states.

Vehicles operate day and night, and so does the reliable customer service center at SafeAuto®. Friendly and helpful support personnel are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year for everything from proof of insurance requests to claims reporting.

SafeAuto®, founded in 1993, recorded $335 million in earned premiums in 2006, according to data from the Ohio Department of Insurance. The insurer's underwriting gain, the profit left after claims losses and expenses, totaled $22.2 million.
