Add this coverage when another person is jointly titled, along with the insured, on one of the vehicles.
Insured drivers are covered, even when logged into a “transportation network platform” (until they accept a passenger).

Need to swap a flat with that spare tire in your trunk? This coverage gets a service provider out to make the change. You’ll need to provide the tire.
If your private passenger auto breaks down, a service provider will tow the vehicle to a destination of your choice, within a 10-mile radius of the point of disablement. If the destination of your choice is not within a 10-mile radius, the vehicle will be towed to our nearest authorized repair facility.
Minor Mechanical First Aid
Your coverage includes the fixes you need to get your vehicle started and to a repair shop, like replacing a broken hose or belt. You’ll need to pay for materials.

Sometimes it feels like you can’t help it. Someone is driving slowly in the fast lane, or they race through a red light when you’re about to make a turn. You make an angry gesture and slam on your horn. Watching the news that night, you see a startling report about a driver who actually got out of his car to challenge another driver.
A 2016 AAA study found nearly half of all drivers yelled or honked at another driver during the year. More than half of all drivers purposefully tailgated another driver. Three percent deliberately used their car to hit another car on the road.
Road rage is dangerous for drivers and passengers, and it has an impact on insurance, too: we don’t offer liability coverage for intentional acts that cause bodily injury or property damage. You can talk to your independent insurance agent about exactly what is covered, but unsafe driving is not something we want to encourage.
What can you do to reduce road rage in yourself and others? Staying away from drivers with dangerous behavior is a start. Yes, someone might get ahead of you on the highway or skip a stop sign, but the alternative could be getting into an expensive, life-threatening accident.
Staying calm on the road is helpful too. Remembering the risks of road rage can help keep you from getting angry and aggressive.
Next time you’re in your car, think about the other drivers around you — and what you can do to keep everyone safe on the road.
