I always wondered about the bonding, and if it's applicable to private citizens (IE, not a company vehicle, etc).

In Virginia you must have insurance, or pay the 'un-insured fee' to get your license plates.

The catch is that even if you pay the fee, you can be forced to demonstrate assets equal to the states minimum insurance that could be seized in the even of a judgment against you.

It was originally intended to allow wealthy people to 'self insure.'

Q. Is auto insurance mandatory in Wisconsin?

After June 1, 2010, Wisconsin drivers will be required to have an automobile insurance policy in force or, in limited situations, other security which could be a surety bond, personal funds, or certificate of self-insurance. Details are available at the Department of Transportation, Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV), Hill Farms State Office Building, 4802 Sheboygan Ave., Madison, WI 53702.

Link Posted: 9/17/2009 7:37:07 AM EST
yes in Missouri you got to have insurance.
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 7:40:12 AM EST
Yes in Vermont, but it's not required in New Hampshire.
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 7:41:14 AM EST
Yes.

In order to register and legally operate your vehicle on West Virginia roads, you must purchase a liability insurance policy from a licensed auto insurance carrier. At the very least, that policy must include:

$10,000 for property damages
$20,000 for one accident, one injury/death
$40,000 for one accident, two injuries/deaths


Note that the mandatory insurance covers the other guy, not you.

Are you sure?

From the NC Code:

20‑279.9. Form and amount of security.

The security required under this Article shall be in such form and in such amount as the Commissioner may require but in no case in excess of the limits specified in G.S. 20‑279.5 in reference to the acceptable limits of a policy or bond. The person depositing security shall specify in writing the person or persons on whose behalf the deposit is made and, at any time while such deposit is in the custody of the Commissioner or State Treasurer, the person depositing it may, in writing, amend the specification of the person or persons on whose behalf the deposit is made to include an additional person or persons; provided, however, that a single deposit of security shall be applicable only on behalf of persons required to furnish security because of the same accident.

The Commissioner may reduce the amount of security ordered in any case if, in his judgment, the amount ordered is excessive. In case the security originally ordered has been deposited the excess deposited over the reduced amount ordered shall be returned to the depositor or his personal representative forthwith, notwithstanding the provisions of G.S. 20‑279.10. (1953, c. 1300, s. 9.)

Are you sure you have to have it in TN?

And no, I don't think the two are comparable. I think it's a stupid argument to say "well you have to have car insurance, why not health insurance?".

It's made even more stupid an argument by the fact that you DON'T have to have auto insurance.

Link Posted: 9/17/2009 7:52:35 AM EST
Not required … but I have it anyways. Also have the uninsured motorist coverage since there are a lot of crappy drivers who drive around here without insurance.

Same deal with seatbelts … they're not required, but I wear mine just in case.

not required in florida if you can prove economic ability to pay up

Only required to have liability if you own your car outright.
Full coverage needed if you have a lien.

I remember an incident not long ago - don't remember hwo was involved - where the guy's insurance was late and they threatened to notify the DMV. Draw your own conclusions from that.

Car insurance stuff

Do all states require car insurance?

No, all states do not require car insurance but they do require financial responsibility to operate a vehicle on the roadway. While not all states require drivers to buy liability insurance to show financial responsibility, 48 states (plus Washing DC) do. These states do not have compulsory auto insurance liability laws:

1. New Hampshire
2. Wisconsin

All 50 states have different requirements when it comes to auto insurance and the minimum insurance requirements. Almost every state requires you to have Bodily Injury Liability insurance and every states has financial responsibility laws that require you be able to have sufficient assets to pay for any liability you cause in an incident.

In some states, drivers can't register a car without showing proof that they have liability insurance, while other states only need proof of insurance when a driver has an accident or gets tickets. If you visit this free car insurance quote page and select your state, you can see the Minimum Requirements.

Every state requires insurance or that you meet financial responsibility requirements through a bond or some other way which shows you are able to pay if you cause damages to another person or property in an automobile accident. Each state changes and/or renews their laws annually, so some states that had no insurance requirements in the past now do. New Hampshire probably has the least amount of requirements.

With this interactive car insurance map you can click on any state and learn what is required.

Just wait till you get the nice lttle notice and are required to show 'proof of insurance or assets.'

If you cannot prove you have assets equal to the minimum requirements it very quickly rises to felony level status.

The 'uninsured fee' in Virginia is a 'self insurance' fee.

When you find out what the bond costs you will begin shopping for insurance.

It is NOT an option for most folks to even consider.

Keep in mind how much some cars cost (not yours but the guy you just hit) and you may want to have more than the minimum
insurance.

NY requires insurance. DMV will fine you by the day if you have plates without insurance.
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 11:49:25 AM EST
No, but you can't drive your car on the highway.

Seriously, here it is, some years after mandatory insurance. Our insurance rates did not go down as promised. There are still lots of people driving around with no insurance.

They passed the seat belt law that the insurance companies promised. At first it was only a secondary offense. Now the cops can stop you for a fishing expedition and just say, "He appeared to not be wearing a seatbelt." It is a primary offense now, even though We the People were promised that would never happen. And our insurance rates still have not come down.

You know promise... "Your shipment is on the truck. Your check is in the mail. And I promise, Honey, I won't..."

Well, you get my drift.

Tx you have to have proof of financial responsdibility. That means insurance, or a bond on record with the county clerk of at least 50K. I'd have to look up the exact statute but that is the gist of it in TX

You are required to have liability insurance or a self-insured bond (to pay for anything you crash into or run over). You are not required by state law to have comprehensive or collision coverage, although if your car is owned by a lender they will require comp/coll coverage.

That's one thing so many people fail to realize. Liability insurance DOES cover you. It keeps your house, your car, your bank account, your kids college fund, other assets. Etc. Protected in case you hurt someone or damage their stuff. People really do fail to understand how expensive it is to settle out an auto claim. 10K property damage is chump change. I pay out pretty much every day, at leat one claim where our policyholder caused at least 20K in property damage. Its chump change in the grand scheme, and I know most people on this board don't have that kind of money just lying around. Trust me folks insurance saves your ass if it comes time when you need it.
