  • Uh oh. You at least need LIABILITY... You will need it or you could be sued and lose everything due to an accident. Your insurance will pay damages that the victim incurs. Set aside some money for liability. REALLY It is more important than just about anything. Oh , also Homeowners Insurance. Ot RENTERS insurance. VERY importnat. Ask any insurance agent about Liability. And home or renters policies.

  • If you can't afford liability you can't afford to drive. In my state you get caught and you get a huge fine. Your vehicle impounded and lose your license for a year. People driving with no insurance are part of why MY rates go up. No tickets, no accidents..but SOMEONE has to pay the bills the uninsured are responsible for.

  • Please don't drive in MO... And it's because of people like you that I have to pay for uninsured motorists ins on our policy! You shouldn't drive if you don't have it. It's just plain stupidity to not have it!

  • I hate when people drive with no insurance. You are gurting others if you wreck. They tow you here if you don't have insurance.

  • In many states, getting caught without insurance will get you a big fine and a loss of driving privileges.
