Auto Insurance Terms To Know

Auto Insurance Terms To Know

Insurance Terms 101

Deciding on the right auto insurance policy can be much easier said than done, especially when it comes time to understanding the various auto insurance terms. Keep this simple guide in mind to help make sure that you choose the best auto insurance policy for your specific needs.

  • Comprehensive – sometimes called “other than collision coverage,” comprehensive coverage will provide protection for damage that is done to your vehicle in an incident other than a crash, such as theft or fire. While comprehensive coverage is not a required coverage, it can help to save you hundreds or thousands of dollars.
  • Property damage liability insurance – if you hit another car or any other piece of property, such as a mailbox, your property damage liability insurance will cover the cost of the damages. Keep in mind that property damage liability will not provide any protection for damage that is done to your car during the accident.
  • Bodily injury liability insurance – this coverage option is required by law, and will provide coverage for any injuries that you cause to another driver during an accident. It is important to remember that bodily injury liability protection will not cover your medical bills if you are injured.
  • Deductibles – your deductible is the amount that you will have to pay out of your own pocket before your auto insurance coverage will kick in, so make sure that you choose a deductible that you will be able to afford.

You Do Not Want To Miss The Pecan Street Festival!

You Do Not Want To Miss The Pecan Street Festival!

Pecan Street Festival

The Pecan Street Festival is the perfect way to enjoy the weekend! The two day event that runs from the 2nd to the 3rd is one of the longest running and largest music and arts and crafts festivals in the country. You will not want to miss out on all that this event has to offer, so make sure to plan a whole weekend that the family can enjoy together.

The seven blocks of 6th Street that fall between IH 35 and Congress are some of the most well-known streets in all of Texas, and has become the heart of Austin’s live entertainment scene. When Edwin Waller designed Austin’s street grid, he named the streets that run north-south after rivers in Texas, and then recommended a numeric designation for streets that run east-west. However, his idea was shut down, and the east-west streets were named after trees. A few years later, that decision was also reversed, and the streets were renamed with numbers, which transformed Pecan Street to Sixth Street. The long running festival is meant to honor the original name of the street.

The street is still lined with many commercial buildings and historical houses that date back to the late 1800s and early 1900s. Many of the old buildings are now home to various bars, tattoo parlors, live entertainment venues, casual cafes, art galleries, upscale restaurants, and the Driskill Hotel.

All of the money that is raised during the event helps to directly support the Pecan Street Association efforts to keep the 6th Street district a historical landmark for many years.

All of us at Dean Davis Insurance in Austin, Texas would like to invite you and your friends and family out for all the fun that surrounds the Pecan Street Festival this year!
