Fair car insurance has arrived in the Keystone State. First came the signing of the Declaration of Independence and now comes the new frontier of car insurance—Root. (Ring the Liberty Bell!) Founded on the principle of fairness, good drivers can finally save up to 52% with Root.

Since PA is now an electronic proof of insurance state, you’ll always have legal proof of coverage on hand. (Root policyholders can find their electronic proof of insurance right in the Root app.) Root’s competitive quotes and simple app prove that car insurance can be affordable and easy for the best drivers of PA—from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia, Harrisburg to Allentown, and in every corner of the Keystone State.

PA drivers must carry proof of insurance while driving and must present it during traffic stops and when registering a car. Acceptable forms include:

The average Pennsylvanian pays $1,313 2 per year for their auto policy, but many people are paying much more—often to make up for their bad-driving counterparts. Root doesn’t insure high-risk drivers, so Root customers are saving up to $1,187 per year, on average—all while enjoying simple, fair car insurance.
