Time Machine Tuesday: Uninsured Motorists

In 1954 the Colorado Legislative Council conducted a study to determine the feasibility of requiring all Colorado drivers to carry auto insurance.  The Problem of the Uninsured Motorist in Colorado examined the numbers of drivers without insurance and what percentage of accidents were caused by uninsured motorists, and the resulting economic losses; looked at other states that had adopted a compulsory insurance law; discussed the problem of drivers failing to report accidents; and considered legislation addressing discriminatory practices of insurers who refused to sell insurance to minority groups.
