Why should I buy auto insurance in Arizona?
Before you can register a vehicle in Arizona, you must show proof of financial responsibility. This can be in the form of a certificate of insurance, a bond, or certificate of deposit or cash in the amount of $40,000.
Will my minimum limit Arizona policy protect me if I drive to another state that requires higher minimum liability limits?
In most cases, your Arizona policy limits will be interpreted to provide at least the minimum limits required by the laws of the state in which you are operating your vehicle. You should review your policy to make certain this is the case.
Will my Arizona personal auto policy provide coverage if I drive my vehicle into Mexico?
Mexican law requires that you purchase separate liability coverage from a Mexican insurer before operating your vehicle in Mexico. Your Arizona personal auto policy may provide some limited coverage on a limited basis (within 25-50 miles of the Mexican border), but this coverage does not meet the insurance requirements of the Republic of Mexico. Failure to purchase proper Mexican liability insurance may result in many hours in a Mexican jail or a heavy fine if you are involved in an accident while operating your vehicle in Mexico.
