Is a 50/100/50 liability insurance policy too much coverage?
I'm a 26-year-old man and I'm buying my first car. I was looking at policies, and I thought I should get more than just minimum liability coverage. But is 50/100/50 liability insurance too much coverage if I just go to work and come home?

“If anything, a 50/100/50 liability insurance policy is too little coverage.
Just think about it. A few days in the hospital can easily cost $100,000, while new cars often go for $50,000 or more. You might want to consider a 100/300/100 or 250/500/250 policy. For just a bit more money per month, you can protect yourself from financial duress in the event of an accident.”

My name isn't on my parents' insurance card. Am I driving uninsured?
I'm 16 and I've started to drive by myself. My parents say they added my name to their car insurance policy, but my name is missing from the insurance card. Does this mean I'm not on their plan after all? Am I driving uninsured?

I can't afford state-minimum auto insurance, but do I have any alternatives?
I was involved in an accident where I was at fault. When it came time to renew my policy, I shopped around and the cheapest policy I could find was $300 a month. I can't afford that. Do I have any other alternatives?
