I've been with GEICO for about 15 years, most of that with GEICO 
Idemnity, where I enjoyed preferred-risk rates. My reckless driving
conviction (pleaded down from a DWI) last year caused them to dump 
me over to GEICO Casualty, where my rates doubled, but at least they 
kept me. Now, I've *never* had to file a claim, so I don't know what 
kind of service I'd get (the property ownerr whose fence I damaged
did, of course, file a claim).

But anyway, I know from the experience of friends that State Farm
would have dumped me, leaving me uninsured, and possibly uninsurable.
Thank God for GEICO.
