“In California, you must carry a minimum liability car insurance of 15k per person and 30k per accident.
You must also have a minimum of 5k in property damage liability.
While your only legal obligation is to meet the state minimum car insurance requirements, it’s always a good idea to carry as much coverage as you can afford.”
