Dear Editor, 

If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything. Michigan has the highest auto insurance in the U.S. It costs me $1,600 a year for two older vehicles, which is minimum coverage to have to be legal. Neither of us have traffic violations, both are baby boomers with excellent credit score.

If someone slams into our vehicle, who is uninsured, living in Michigan, registered out of state and impaired. He/she will be taken care of for life if they incur a serious injury, even if they are at fault. The Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association (MCCA) will pay their medical bills. The MCCA and Michigan legislators are responsible.

Oh, and by the way, the Michigan no fault law and IVICCA are $1.5 billion in debt. Go figure.
