Prudence is indeed a virtue. It helps us avoid being on the wrong side of risky situations. Being careful would not hurt anybody, especially when it has to do with road safety. There are so many automobile accidents happening everyday, safeguarding yourself from harm would definitely be advisable. It can be as simple as remembering to strap on your safety belt and drive within the speed limit. Yet even those precautions will not totally preclude a mishap from happening.
This is where insurance comes into the picture. It gives you peace of mind that you are financially secured to a certain amount, against potential acts of negligence while driving. There is a sense of calm that can be derived from it because you know that there is something in reserve either for you or your loved ones should catastrophe strike.
A heavier burden to carry
No advantage is available to the uninsured. They leave themselves open to liabilities and greater expenses should they unluckily meet with an accident. This is true whether they are at fault or not. If you are uninsured and happen to be on the receiving end of a hit and run incident, what funds will be available to answer for the damages? The culprit has already escaped and could prove to be difficult locate. You are however left with the costs to repair your vehicle and if you were injured, the expenses for your recovery. Despite this and numerous other cases, there are some people who continue to drive without insurance.
It is true that not everyone can afford it. This is probably the reason why there are still those who risk being out on the road without its protection. To some, even the monthly payments may take too much out of their budget. It is however, a necessity. Those who cannot meet this prerequisite before driving must know that to everyone else, they become a liability including to themselves.
