Is it just me, or do we have universal car insurance?
and do we not have a public option in it?
and is it not mandatory by the state?
and yet the birthers and deathers don't seem to notice? And it's enforced at the point of a gun?
Seriously, when I get stopped by a plice officer they say "License, Registration and Insurance card, Please"
and i have to have car insurance, they will give me a ticket if i don't?
and if i let it expire DMV will fine the stink out of me?
and the bank who owns my car note makes me pay it.
For Example here are Oklahoma laws
Ways to Establish Financial Responsibility
Though liability insurance is the most common protection choice among Oklahoma drivers, it is not your only option for establishing financial responsibility. You can also:
Cover yourself under the Oklahoma Assigned Risk Auto Plan.
Make a cash deposit of $75,000 with the Department of Public Safety or an authorized state financial institution.
Take out a self-insurance policy if you have 25 or more vehicles registered under your name.
Obtain a bond issued by an authorized surety company.
Oklahoma Liability Insurance Requirements for Private Passenger Vehicles
If you decide on protecting yourself with liability coverage, here are the minimum amounts you must carry:
$25,000―Injury or death of one person
$50,000―Injury or death of two or more persons
$25,000―For property damage
Remember, these are minimum requirements. You are allowed, if your budget allows, to protect yourself with additional types of coverage including towing and labor.
Before deciding on a carrier, take the time to compare quotes from a variety of insurance companies. This will better your chances of finding a policy that meets both your needs and budget. After deciding, your carrier will send you an insurance identification card which you must carry with you when behind the wheel.
and here in the assigned risk pool we have
The Oklahoma Automobile Insurance Plan was created in 1950. The Plan's purpose is to provide automobile insurance coverage to eligible private passenger and commercial risks who are unable to obtain coverage through the voluntary market. (For complete eligibility requirements, see Section 2 and Section 18 of the Plan Manual).
Any insurance agent in the state of Oklahoma that has a valid Oklahoma Property and Casualty license can write business through the OAIP. Commissions are paid to the producing agent.
