Although this is the state minimum for car insurance, there is another option for the residents of Indiana. You can place $40,000 in a trust or you place the funds on deposit with the Treasurer of the state. Most drivers cannot afford to place that amount money on deposit and those which have the funds over ninety-nine percent of the time they get insurance from a reputable firm anyway.
Carrying the lowest coverage is an option, but it is recommend to look into comprehensive, collision, uninsured motorist protection, and Gap insurance if you have financed your vehicle.
Indiana has a higher than average stolen car rate, particularly in Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, and South Bend, and comprehensive coverage will suffice. However, if you are able to park your vehicle in a garage and a secured parking lot when at work you want to tell your agent your car is secured to lower the comprehensive insurance coverage. If you are getting insurance for a motorcycle then you want to be sure to have “non-collision” coverage since the state is eighth in nation for stolen motorcycles.
Since the uninsured motorist rate is high, whether you live in Clarksville or Greenwood, you may want to consider this type of coverage. UM will help protect you when involved in an accident with a driver with little to no insurance to cover the repair bills and damages.
