I have a history of many accidents so it made sense to me and I didnt question it. 2... View More

I have multiple cars and he told me that I only need to have it on one of my two cars and it would cover both cars in the event of a claim. I still had to sign a form saying I was declining it for one of the cars. Was his statement true?

But in most states no warning is necessary. Speak with an attorney in your area who handles traffic issues once you know the...View More
