EVERYONE EXPECTS insurance companies to be risk experts. Setting an insurance premium is, indeed, the actuarial science of probabilities: The probability that a policy-holder will experience health problems, that a driver will get into an accident with the family car or that a home or its possessions will be damaged.So it is noteworthy, indeed, when Allstate Insurance Co., the state's No. 2 insurer, acknowledges that it may have set premiums so low for Maryland homeowners in the past that it must impose unusually large increases this year.

In September of this year, Allstate ranked Baltimore as having the second worst drivers of any large metropolitan area in the country. In part, Allstate claimed "Baltimore's drivers struggle more than nearly any other city in the nation…" I think that Allstate was too kind. I have lived in several large cities across the country and driven in 45 of the 50 states and several other countries. I have found that Baltimore drivers are surpassed in their impatience, negligence and disdain for the laws of the road only by the drivers in Rome, Italy.

Many consumers voluntarily buy more than one type of insurance from the same company so they can get a discount on premiums. But what if an insurer wouldn't sell you a homeowner's policy unless you also purchased auto insurance from it, too? Some insurers are doing just that. The Fayetteville Observer reported early this year that Allstate was canceling the homeowner's policies of nearly 46,000 North Carolina customers because they didn't buy auto insurance from the company, while N.C. Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance was taking similar steps with about 28,000 policyholders.

Company officials said yesterday that they are working to satisfy inquiries from Maryland regulators, who have asked for detailed financial data and information on hurricane forecasting models.

The commission sued Allstate after the second-largest auto insurer refused to "provide appropriate monetary relief" to the agents after they were forced to become independent contractors rather than regular employees with pensions and benefits, a lawyer for the EEOC said.
