Nearly Half of Detroit Motorists Do Not Have Auto Insurance

Car insurance may be required in nearly every state. But that doesn’t mean every driver has coverage. The Insurance Research Council reports that one in seven drivers lack coverage. The City of Detroit however has a much higher rate, approaching fifty percent of drivers on the road.

In Detroit, driving without insurance is usually a secondary offense discovered when a motorist is stopped for another violation or involved in an accident. Penalties in Detroit can include fines of almost $700 and a suspended license. These penalties don’t help drivers that are hit by uninsured drivers though.

No matter where it happens, a run-in with an uninsured driver could mean major trouble. “If you’re in an accident with someone who has no insurance or not enough insurance, your only options are to look to your insurer— or to your own wallet. That is why it is important to have the proper insurance coverage that covers against uninsured or under-insured drivers.
