Car Insurance Day

Car Insurance Day is an annual American holiday dedicated to car insurance. This procedure is widespread both in the United States and in other countries. The holiday is celebrated on February 1st.


Car insurance is a procedure by which car owners can insure their car through special organizations. The list of cases in which insurance is valid includes: theft, accident, breakdown, and so on. Car insurance allows drivers to receive compensation for damage in the event of an insurance situation.

The concept of insurance appeared in society thanks to Benjamin Franklin. This wonderful man, who was directly involved in the creation of the United States, and also achieved great success in various fields of activity, created the first insurance company in 1751. People could insure their property against fire.

The first car was created by K. Benz in 1886. Already after eleven years, mechanic Gilbert J. Loomis created his own car, for which he issued the world’s first insurance policy. Over the course of a century, the auto insurance industry has been actively developing and improving. In 1927, compulsory auto insurance was introduced in Massachusetts. It was the first state to have such rules.
