I guess State Farm Insurance drivers like to hit our vehicles.

Either that, or it could be that State Farm enjoys around a 25% market share - They are the largest insurer of private passenger autos in the U.S.

It is one of the insurers that I would not care to represent as an agent - Think about it. 1 of every 4 people who carry auto insurance are already insured with State Farm, and their agents are captive - can't use competing insurers' products:

Me: Mr Doe, I would like to compare and quote your auto insurance for you and your family.

Mr. Doe: What company do you represent.

Me: State Farm.

Mr. Doe: I am already insured with State Farm. Buy Bye.
