How much will my liability insurance pay if I have state-minimum coverage in Georgia?
I hit a car and totaled it, but it was only worth $3,000. However, the other driver has $45,000 in medical bills. Will my Georgia state-minimum liability insurance cover me?

“Georgia’s minimum liability insurance will only cover up to $25,000 for bodily injury per person and $25,000 for damage to property.
In this case, your insurance will take care of all the property damage and up to $25,000 for the other driver’s medical bills. The remaining $20,000 is up to you to cover, unfortunately.
In the future, don’t just buy the cheapest minimum-liability policy. Get coverage with higher limits to protect yourself and your finances.”

What is considered a lapse in insurance for auto insurance companies?
I live in Texas and own two vehicles. Both are currently insured and paid off. Since I'm not driving either of them, I'd like to cancel the insurance. I'm also considering registering them as non-operational. If I do decide to cancel both insurance policies, will this be considered a lapse in the future?
