RE MAX Harbor Realty

Automobile insurance plan, debated for a number of years, that is financed through a surcharge of a given number of cents per gallon (estimates run from 30 to 40 cents) to be paid by the purchaser of the gasoline. The plan would operate on the NO-fault automobile insurance basis. Claims would be paid from an insurance pool whose funds would be generated by the surcharge. Drivers would receive unlimited medical coverage, up to $25,000, for missed wages and collision damage. Drivers would be required to pay a $250 deductible. Those drivers desiring additional lost wages or damage coverage, could purchase it separately.
