No-insurance blues

Today the Houston Chronicle has this story about many Texas drivers lacking insurance. The story focuses on Austin and Travis County drivers. Many in Houston simply read this and say “duh.” However, it brought to mind a little known fact that people ought to know. As anyone who drives in the Houston-Harris County metroplex knows, there are areas where officers are surprised that drivers do have insurance. Also, some insurance companies are selling coverage to unlicensed drivers. Some companies are insuring drivers who only have the Mexican consulate card. Now I don’t know what happens when one of these drivers crashes and wants to file a claim. I have yet to see what the insurance company will do.
