“There are worse things in life than death.

Woody Allen

 In New Jersey, the rate of uninsured motorists is said to be about 11%, despite attempts by state lawmakers to reduce those numbers. New Jersey is also one of the most expensive places to try and obtain auto insurance, with an average cost of $1081 per person. No wonder there is a correlation between a state’s unemployment rate and the percentage of uninsured motorists.
