How much do pay for INSURANCE per month?

How much do you guys pay for insurance per month?

Here I get charged $220 per month for two way insurance with the NO features. Such as: no rental car, $2000 deductible, no windshield coverage, no theft coverage, no hail or water coverage, no first accident forgiveness, zero tolerance for any ticket (they will drop your policy or raise it 2x) etc.

This is with no tickets, no crashes, high end area, no suspensions and 14 years driving with a full license.

Gotta love Ontario

About 100 / car / month. No coverage, just basic insurance with the highest deductable. Clean record, full license with 12 years experience

I was a little shocked to see the first choice at $1-50 because I'm closer to what frank is paying, I pay $33 per month for two cars, my civic vx has full coverage with a $500 deductible and that coverage includes theft, hail and anything else I feel like reporting as long as I pay the first $500 and although I've had my motorcycle license starting when I turned 18, I've only had a license to drive a car for the last 7 years, and in that time an accident that was my fault and one that was not.
Here most home owners insurance will not insure you without auto insurance because the auto insurance is how they make their money.

I pay $37/month for full coverage on my 6 year old car, which is/was the third most likely vehicle to be ticketed. That's not too bad for driving in the Bay Area. Of course, the last ticket I received was nearly 30 years ago.

I'm 22 and I rolled through a stop sign a few years back, so I don't have a completely clean record. I'm paying around $700 a year, so that's about $60 a month.

I live in Florida and I have minimal coverage.

It's not that, it's kind of our tax system, pay high taxes and get free basic healthcare. It's so high because it covers a lot of different things, like if you hurt or kill someone.

I pay about $53 a month for minimum coverage for my Civic. I am considering shopping around now that I see people paying a lot less. I have only one ticket over 3 years ago and thats my entire record.

Eww, don't ask.

High rate of theft, vandalism, moving violations, accidents, etc. (I'm talking about the car.)

I have: A near perfect driving history (17 years), with one moving violation (over 10 years ago), and 0 culpability in any accidents (been rear ended thrice, only reported twice... and sideswiped once). I pay: ~$150/month.
