What is the minimum car insurance requirement for Maryland?

What's the minimum amount of car insurance required in Maryland? I'm a single dad and want to make sure I have the right amount of coverage while also saving money.

Saving money is always top of mind, especially when you’re looking out for your children.
Maryland requires drivers to have the following minimum car insurance coverage.
Type of CoverageMinimum Insurance Limit
Minimum Liability Coverage30/60/15
Bodily injury per accident$30,000
Bodily injury per person$60,000
Property damage per accident$15,000
Uninsured motorist coverage30/60/15
Bodily injury per accident$30,000
Bodily injury per person$60,000
Property damage per accident$15,000
Personal injury protection (PIP)$2,500
This might seem like a lot of coverage, but it is meant to protect you and other drivers. Having more coverage does make your rates higher, but it prevents potential financial strain in the future if you were to get into an accident and not have the proper coverage.
