Do I still need full-coverage auto insurance if I've paid off my car loan in full?

I just paid off my car loan in full. I want to save money on insurance, but I'm not sure if I can change my coverage to something cheaper.

“Once you pay off your car loan, you’re no longer contractually obligated to carry full-coverage car insurance.
But that doesn’t mean you should completely drop your coverage in favor of liability insurance only.
Instead, think about the value of your car. Is it worth $10,000 or more? If so, keeping collision coverage and comprehensive coverage might be worth it.
If you’re comfortable taking a total loss on the car in the event of an accident, getting liability-only insurance might save you money.
