EPIC-MRA Press Release: Statewide Poll on Detroit Auto Insurance Plan
EPIC-MRA conducted a statewide survey of voters about their opinions on the proposal (Senate Bill 288) to allow a low-cost / low-benefit auto insurance policy in Detroit. The bill would limit the medical care available to Detroit drivers injured in auto accidents to a total of $250,000 in critical medical care, and $25,000 in non-critical care. (per accident, not per individual).
Supporters say the proposal would reduce the cost of caring for auto accidents in Detroit which could reduce insurance rates. However, CPAN has issued several concerns. Based on the survey results, Michigan voters clearly feel this proposal is a bad idea as well.
