Uninsured drivers in Massachusetts
A 2011 report from The Insurance Research Council estimated that 4 percent of Massachusetts drivers were uninsured in 2009. This was tied with Maine for the lowest percentage in the nation. On one hand, boo-ya! But on the other, 4 percent is still a lot of uninsured drivers, and uninsured motorist coverage, which is required, offers financial protection from them.
