State minimum insurance requirements are the car insurance requirements for each state, by law, for their residents. These minimum requirements for each state can be found at the state insurance commissioner’s website. Although keeping up with the state minimum requirements are all that is needed to keep one legal in their state for car insurance, only purchasing the state minimum insurance requirements is usually not the best choice.

But it is true and sometimes the changes it takes to put into law what is the best coverage for car insurance is a lengthy process and is often behind the economy changes. Let us look at an example:
