Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - Manitoba drivers will see a smaller-than-expected rate increase to their auto insurance.

The Public Utilities Board approved a 1.8 percent increase today, effective March 1st.

MPI had asked for 2.2 percent overall.

Not all motorists will get the same price hike on their Autopac premiums.

Rates are dependent on major vehicle class, individuals' driving records, and the make-and-model of your vehicle, among other factors.
