Louisiana: Insurance Required

Louisiana: Insurance Required

BY Chris Gautreau

Driving without insurance in Louisiana has become increasingly difficult over the past two years. From October 1998 through June of this year, thousands of cars were impounded when drivers were unable to prove they carried state-mandated liability insurance policies. That law combined with court-approved insurance checkpoints and so-called "no pay, no play" laws that limit an uninsured driver's claim to damages comprise some of the country's toughest compulsory insurance laws.
