A: A Colorado attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. The general rule in most places is that insurance follows the vehicle. It isn't fully clear what that provision that you cited means. The word "none" there doesn't seem to help. But it would help to know what the rest of that policy says. You could ask your insurance agent or review the policy with a Colorado attorney - that would be the definitive way to sort this out. Good luck
