Currently California law requires all drivers to have auto insurance, however our state has one of the highest uninsured motorist rates in the nation. With the current economic climate, even more California drivers may consider dropping existing coverage or not getting covered at all – which puts all motorists at risk. The California Low Cost Automobile Insurance Program is a State-sponsored program to help eligible drivers get low cost liability coverage.
