car insurance coverages
All motorists in Maryland and the rest of Baltimore are required to carry at least the following liability insurance limits:
- $30,000 of bodily injury liability per person
- $60,000 of bodily injury liability per incident
- $15,000 of property damage liability per incident
Liability coverage helps financially protect you if you're found at fault in an accident that results in injury or property damage to another driver.
Personal injury protection (PIP)
Drivers in Maryland are also required to carry $2,500 of PIP coverage, which helps financially protect you regardless of fault in an accident. It can help pay for things like funeral expenses, medical fees, substitute services (a housecleaner, for example), and lost wages if you can't work due to a covered incident.

Uninsured motorist coverage
If you or your passengers are involved in an accident with an uninsured driver that results in injury or property damage, uninsured motorist coverage helps financially safeguard you from medical and repair bills coming out of your pocket.
The Old Line State requires all residents carry uninsured motorist coverage at the same minimum limits as your liability coverage:
- $30,000 of uninsured motorist bodily injury per person
- $60,000 of uninsured motorist bodily injury per incident
- $15,000 of uninsured motorist property damage per incident
This coverage also protects you in hit-and-run situations.
Additional coverages like these can help protect you against whatever the road throws your way.
In Maryland, a car is stolen every 36 minutes. In addition to theft and vandalism, comprehensive coverage can help repair or replace your vehicle after a multitude of disasters, including falling debris and glass damage.
Liability coverage can help protect you from paying to repair another person's car after an at-fault accident, but what about your ride? Once you pay your deductible, collision coverage kicks in to repair or place your vehicle if you caused the accident-related damage.
Towing and labor
Whether you're broken down in the middle of nowhere or you locked your keys in your car (again), towing and labor is generally just a few dollars a month and can help prevent some major headaches.

Charm City's crash conundrum
Baltimore ranked fifth in a 2013 list of the worst drivers in American cities by Slate. According to the data, there's an average of just over 5 years between accidents for each Baltimorean, which is the fourth-worst rate of recurrence in the country.
The good news, however, is that your city ranked significantly lower than other top offenders for things like pedestrian strikes, fatalities, and DWI deaths.
Backup in Baltimore
The Baltimore area was crammed with an average of almost 1.5 million commuters during peak rush hours in 2011, according to the Texas Transportation Institute's 2012 Urban Mobility Report.
The congestion added up to an average of 41 hours of annual delay per commuter, along with 19 gallons of wasted gas and more than $900 in congestion costs.
