2. It's a catch 22.

Yes, the reason your insurance is so high is because of all the uninsured motorists, but the reason there are so many uninsured motorists is because insurance is so high.

Years ago, I was an uninsured motorist because I couldn't afford to have insurance while feeding my family - we were that poor. Yet I had to drive because there was no adequate transportation where I lived and I couldn't afford to move. Luckily, I never had an accident but I could have and it bothered me greatly.

We live in a society that makes living while poor a crime. Our criminal system and taxation system pours money into defending and pampering those with wealth while leaving the poor to scramble by hoping not to get caught up in the system. Black, white, red or brown, the poor live in fear of the system.

Anyway, I'm glad you weren't hurt and I hope you get everything of value replaced. Good luck.
