The number of uninsured drivers changes each year; it tends to ebb and flow with the economy, and it is different in every state. According to the latest data, about 13% of drivers in America are uninsured — 82% of them stated that this was due to financial hardship. Florida tends to have the most uninsured drivers at around 23.8%, and Massachusetts the fewest at 3.9%.
No matter where you live, it’s important to make sure you and your family have the best protection in the event of an accident. Uninsured motorist liability is inexpensive coverage that will pay out in the event of a loss after an accident with a driver who isn’t carrying insurance.
