What's a good amount of car insurance coverage in Texas?
I just moved from Vermont to Texas, and I'm registering my car in Texas. Before I can register the car, I need auto insurance. In Vermont, I had the bare-minimum coverage, but I want to protect myself as I'm living in a busy area of Dallas.
“Let’s start with some good news. Vermont has higher car insurance minimums than Texas. This means from a financial standpoint, you likely won’t get much sticker shock, even if you take out a policy with higher limits in Texas.
Most people get at least 100/300/100 coverage on their car insurance. Such a policy covers:
- $100,000 for bodily injury liability per person
- $300,000 for bodily injury liability per accident
- $100,000 for property damage liability per accident
With this type of coverage, you’ll probably have enough so you won’t end up paying out of pocket if you’re at fault in an accident.
As with any car insurance policy, make sure to get quotes on the free Jerry app to find the best rates from some of the top providers in the country.”

Do I need to be added to my parents' insurance on an Acura TLX if I drive it regularly?
I recently sold my car because the car note and insurance costs are too high. However, my parents have an extra car (Acura TLX) they rarely drive, and they said I could drive it for the time being. Do I need to be added to the policy if I drive the car regularly?
