A vicious cycle of inequality

About 1 out of 8 drivers in the U.S. don’t have car insurance.

How can that be? When you get a license plate, don’t they check to make sure you have insurance?

Consider this: 2 out of 3 Americans don’t have $500 in savings. What that means is that they need to make really hard tradeoffs, like deciding whether or not to keep their car insurance. Those uninsured (or even underinsured) people are just one fender bender away from total financial ruin. When you factor in home insurance, you find even more aren't properly covered.
