Auto Insurance in Arizona
The Grand Canyon State is situated in the hottest region of the United States, and has very low precipitation. Most of the time Arizona drivers drive on dry roads in clear conditions. The average auto insurance premium for residents in Arizona is $1,401 in 2010; $144 below the current national average. The requirements for minimum coverage are also relatively low. This is due to a relatively low population along with very few instances of poor weather affecting driving conditions.
- Bodily injury liability minimum: $15,000/person, $30,000/accident
- Property damage liability minimum: $10,000
There is no grace period in Arizona from the time you purchase a vehicle to the time you must have it insured. If you are unable to attain automobile coverage from a private insurer in Arizona, the state has a program called the Arizona Automobile Insurance Plan in which a qualifying applicant is connected with an insurer who will write insurance for them.
Arizona follows a Tort system when it comes to insurance liability concerning a car accident. This means the driver determined to be at fault for an accident is liable for the damage and injuries of both parties. That is why it is important to have the correct coverage to protect yourself in the event of high costs due to damage and potential hospital bills.
