I have tried in every way I can think of, but I just cannot get anyone to give me any actual rates which a truck driver could expect if minimum liability insurance were to be raised by the federal government for interstate trucking.
(Read about my search for information here: http://annaleahmary.com/2015/06/my-crash-course-on-underwriting-for-trucking-minimum-liability-could-impact-you/ )
I have a few leads which I am waiting to hear back on, but I am not holding my breath.
So, I thought that I would turn to truckers themselves and ask for help in discovering what the truth of the matter is: Will rates actually skyrocket and put independent owner operators out of business? That’s what I hear. Is that the truth?
If you are a trucker, please contact your insurance carrier and ask them what your current annual rate is for liability insurance and what it would be if the minimum level were to be raised from $750,000 to $4.2 million.
Then, please let me know what you find out. You can comment on this post or send me a Tweet at my Twitter account or a private message at our facebook account. If you don’t feel comfortable about letting me know, please talk to each other about it and see what you think.
