It’s a common question lately. When do the new laws go into effect?
Some go into effect next year.
The Journal Sentinel wrote a story about this a while ago.
Motorists will need to have a policy providing at least $50,000 in bodily injury coverage for one person, $100,000 in bodily injury coverage per accident and $15,000 to cover property damage. The current limits are $25,000, $50,000 and $10,000, respectively. The higher limits go into effect Jan. 1.
Your new policy or renewed policy must include underinsured motorist coverage starting November 1, 2009.
Underinsured motorist coverage, which now is optional, will be required for state drivers on new or renewed policies starting Nov. 1.
Auto insurance will be required starting June 1, 2010.
I hope this answers some of those questions.
