Progressive Insurance makes a responsible decision

I'm personally glad we just switched to them.

NEW ORLEANS— After Hurricane Katrina, flood-damaged cars in Louisiana's hardest-hit parishes were left sitting in water for up to four weeks before insurance companies could get in and start pulling them out.

The Progressive Group of Insurance Companies, the third largest auto insurance group in Louisiana and in the U.S., made an unprecedented decision to scrap the more than 5,000 vehicles it insured that were declared total losses as a result of flood waters in St. Bernard parish and parts of Orleans parish.

"The reasons are simple," said Juan Andrade, claims general manager for the region. "We don't want our people working around those cars and we don't want them back on the road."

I've got nothing but praise for Progressive. They were nice and helpful after the storm. When I finally got my car out of New Orleans, they paid all the damage for the debris that banged up one side.
