My car insurance DOUBLED moving to NH, because uninsured motorist and medical payments are REQUIRED BY LAW!
I don't understand. You aren't required to insure your car at all in NH.
Now THAT is interesting! I haven't lived where insurance wasn't mandatory, so this is a surprise.
Most people get cheaper payments when they move due to that. Are you saying that if you choose to insure (and most do), then certain requirements apply?
Having insurance is a good idea, I agree. And yes, the GEICO (I'm going to shop around when I get settled in, count on that!) rep said that in order to ensure in NH, Uninsured Motorist and Medical Payments were required.
They're not required in NC, which is why I was paying "only" $230/6mo.
If GEICO is pulling a fast one, I'm going to be impolite when I cancel my service with them in favor of someone else.
When I lived in Colorado, I got insurance through the local Farm Bureau. It was something like $200/year. Much more rational for someone who's never had an accident.
