If you plan to drive a car, or in fact any motorized vehicle, in this area, you need to be sure to carry liability insurance at a minimum. Liability insurance is that coverage which will reimburse other people if they are in an accident that was caused by you. However, it will not reimburse you for damages to your vehicle or for bodily harm either. Because of this, most insurance agents strongly recommend that you also get some protection for yourself.
Collision auto insurance will help you to pay for car repairs when you are in an accident or when you accidentally run into a stationary object. Comprehensive coverage will help you pay for most other repairs that may come up due to damage, for example winter storm damage to your vehicle or even the theft of your car.
