The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) is launching a program that will allow drivers to legally buy their own “car insurance” to help prevent accidents that might occur in their car.DOT officials say they’re creating a program for those looking to buy a car insurance policy and that it will be available in the coming weeks.
“There’s a lot of different types of insurance, and the insurance that you need depends on your age, your driving record, your insurance coverage,” Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx told reporters at the White House.
“And it’s not going to be all that different for younger drivers, but it will apply to everyone else.”
It will be a pilot program, which means the DOT will test the program, and then expand it to all drivers by the end of the year.
It’s the first time in years that drivers will be able to buy insurance through the insurance company.
Under the new program, drivers will need to submit an online application, pay $25, and receive a $100 discount for signing up for a policy.
They’ll also be required to take a test to prove they’re eligible for the program.
Drivers can apply online through the DOT’s website and pay through an app.
The website will charge $15 for each policy.
The plan is available for new drivers and has a $1,000 deductible.
The DOT says drivers can expect to pay about $600 a year for a one-year policy, and a three-year plan will cost about $4,200.
Drivers can also get a one year policy for $1.25 million.
According to DOT officials, the program is similar to other auto insurance programs that have sprung up in other parts of the country.
In the past, drivers could get auto insurance through their employer.
This program, however, will not offer drivers the same benefits as the federal auto insurance program.
Foxx said the program will help drivers who are looking to protect themselves and their families from accidents that could occur in a car, and that the DOT is also hoping to help reduce traffic deaths.
“If you have a young person driving in your neighborhood, they might not know the rules,” Foxx said.
“It’s a challenge to see a young driver going around a big intersection, but if you have an adult driver in your car, they’re going to get caught up in it.”
