Liability Laws

No person may operate or park a motor vehicle on a highway unless there is a motor vehicle liability policy in force that meets minimum requirements in terms of liability coverage.

Minimum third part liability coverage is $200,000.

The owner of a vehicle is liable for damages for injury, loss or damage to persons or property caused by the negligence or improper conduct of the driver of the vehicle in the operation of the vehicle on a highway and the driver is liable to the same extent as the owner.  This does not apply if the vehicles is being operated without the consent of the owner.
