Many people believe that older drivers aren't safe drivers. An interesting study has looked into the incidence of older truckers to determine if there should be regulations that are based on a trucker's age.

As surprising as it may come to some, even today, there are a few states that do not require drivers to have auto insurance. That being said, in those states, drivers may be responsible for paying vehicle fees or a bond to the state should an accident occur. Then, there are drivers who, despite living in a state that requires auto insurance, either neglect to pay for it, let it lapse, or simply make no effort to obtain it.
