Traffic operates on a five year accounting cycle, and the Board of Directors will endeavor to declare a dividend distribution for a single underwriting year three years after the underwriting year has ended. Each policy year’s results stand alone and are divided within the company’s equity statements for illustrative purposes. Every member’s equity position for each underwriting year is shown in detail by member number.
Historical Dividend Distribution
Traffic has now declared dividends in excess of $83,000,000 as of the August 2017 Board of Directors meeting. In addition to the dividend distributions, premium reductions continue to occur due to attention to loss prevention, the core of Traffic's success. The dividends have and will continue to be declared based on the continued strength of Traffic members’ safety and claims administration programs.
