no fault policies and allowing open competition among insurance providers? I hope it changes. I am sick of paying higher rates for bad drivers who speed and cause accidents. I have no accidents and no speeding tix in 20 yrs of driving and I still have to pay high policies because the rates are predetermined depending on where you live and what step you are (9 being the best which is where I am but I still pay over $1000 a yr because I live near Boston). How do you feel about it?

No fault takes the responsibility for your own actions away. If I do not have to pay for the damage that my negligence causes to others, I have very little incentive to avoid that damage.You can see that in the way people drive in Mass. It is one of the more aggressive driving areas of the country. People have less fear of accidents, especially those driving older cars.There is no real competition for insurance in Mass. If you purchase a vehicle out of state, in a state that allows dealers to issue temporary registration plates, you can not get the current Mass insurance companies to cover you until you have registered the car in Mass. In most states, you just call your agent and have the vehicle added to the policy.No fault = No personal responsibility

NO FAULT IS NO GOOD. MY MOM WAS HIT BY A DRUNK DRIVER (NOT HER FAULT). TWO WEEKS AFTER SHE GOT THE CAR BACK FROM THE SHOP A DUMP TRUCK SWITCHED LANE ABRUPTLY TO AVOID A COLLISION AND HIT HER (NOT HER FAULT). THEN 1 YEAR LATER SOMEONE RAN IN THE BACK OF HER WHILE SHE WAS SITTING AT A RED LIGHT. HER INSURANCE IS THROUGH THE ROOF, EVEN THOUGH SHE IS NOT A BAD DRIVER. HER INSURANCE HAS HAD TO PAY FOR HER BAD LUCK. SOUND FAIR AT ALL?
