Michigan’s no fault car insurance is unlike any other model in America and it has its supporters and detractors. Never has that more true than today. Lawmakers in Lansing are pushing to eliminate the 40-year-old program that charges an insurance premium for unlimited coverage in case of catastrophic injury in a car accident.

Michigan has the highest premiums of any state and the Michigan Chamber of Commerce are among those saying it is time to scrap the system and save Michigan drivers real money. In fact premiums could be cut by more than $1000 per vehicle if reform is pushed through the state legislation.

The battle will be playing out for the next few weeks at least.
