Risk Drivers in Insurance Pool Face Possible Rise in Premiums By Dave Pfankuchen Journal-Times Staff About 5 per cent of Racine County motorists, the portion insured through the Wisconsin Automobile Assigned Risk Plan (WAARP), are facing a possible hike in premium rates. WAARP is a state-supervised organization with offices at Milwaukee. Motorists who have trouble getting insurance on the open market may apply for coverage through WAARP, which first determines eligibility, then assigns the driver to one of the state's standard insurance firms. Each firm thus receives a proportionate share of the assigned risks. The governing committee of WAARP, which has expressed increasing concern over underwriting losses sustained in the program, is expected to meet soon—possibly within a week—to discuss an increase. Pool is Losing Money A study covering the years 1955 through 1959, the latest for which figures are available, shows that Wisconsin assigned risk motorists cost $117.40 in losses and other expenses for bodily injuries and property damage for every $100 in premiums.

A MERICAN B ANK an J ^fudt C^ompan 2 CONVENIENT Locotions DOWNTOWN UPTOWN Mpin at Fifth Washington at Ann The assigned risk losses are n effect subsidized through the premiums paid by non- risk plan motorists. The five-member WAARP governing committee is comprised of working insurance men. The organization is responsible to the state insurance commission, which would have to pass on any request for a rate hike. Rates for drivers insured through WAARP are naturally higher than for non-risk motorists covered through normal channels. Now 10% Higher Premiums paid by assigned risk drivers vary according to individual circumstances, but are basically 10 per cent higher than a standard national rate for regular auto coverage. The standard rate is established by the National Bureau of Casualty Underwriters. "With the steadily mounting loss ratio," says George Haydon, WAARP secretary, "the question is how much longer we can live with the 10 per cent." Haydon said that although the standard national rate was revised upward in 1959, the 10 per cent "overcharge," as it is called, has been in effect since 1957. In applying for assigned risk insurance, a driver must certify that within 60 days prior to the application date he was turned down on one request for coverage directly through a standard company. Meeting that requirement, he can, of course, still be ineligible for assigned risk coverage—if he has too bad a record of driving or other lawbreaking, as determined by WAARP regulations. Applications for WAARP participation are normally sent by local agents on behalf of clients for whom they have turned down standard coverage. Reasons for such turn! downs are many and vary ifrom firm to firm. One Racine agent said that most persons he refers for WAARP coverage are single men under age 25 whose parents have no auto insurance with his company. Older Drivers Affected Another agent described a married man, 24, who would otherwise have been eligible for standard coverage but was referred to WAARP "because he had a few accidents on and a license revocation his record." Another said that very few standard companies will insure "older people." He said most companies will cut off coverage, or refuse a person initial coverage, if he is 65 or 70, the cutoff age depending on the company. These persons can be referred to WAARP. Another Racine agent said that extreme youth in itself does not mean automatic WAARP referral if the driver's parents have auto coverage with a company the agent represents. Haydon said there are currently from 25,000 to 30.000 assigned risk motorists in Wisconsin, about 5 per cent of the total of insured drivers in the state. A check with a dozen Racine agents indicated that the same percentage holds true in Racine County.

Lafayette Ave., effective Feb. 5. Hulbert said another franchise, with which he will be associated, will be located in the present Hulbert Bros. Motor Co. facilities. He said full details will be announced later. Started in 1925 Hulbert and his brother, the late Alter (Art) Hulbert, started in the auto business here in March, 1925, stocking what was then an empty lot with 20 used cars purchased from another Racine auto dealer. Hulbert Bros, remained exclusively a used car enterprise until about 1930, when the Plymouth-DeSoto franchise was obtained. When the Chrysler Corp. discontinued DeSoto last year, Chrysler's Valiant compact, which the Hulberts had been selling, replaced DeSoto in the franchise name. In 1929, the Hulbert Bros. from|erected the first building on their Lafayette Ave. property. Until last year, part of it was used by a truck dealer. Twelve years ago, the Hulberts built their present shov/- room-service building, north of the older structure. Came from Russia Alter Hulbert came to Racine from his native Russia in 1905, Nathan following the next year.
