FAQ's for Drivers in Elmhurst, IL

driver’s frequently asked question in Elmhurst

What Is the Minimum Liability Coverage Requirement in Elmhurst, IL?

In Illinois, you are legally required to obtain liability insurance and uninsured motorist coverage. Both are for your protection if you are deemed “at fault” in an accident that causes injury and lost wages to another driver or passengers in another vehicle (whether or not the other driver is insured or is underinsured). Liability coverage pays up to the amounts listed below.* It also pays for damages to the other driver’s vehicle. Trust us, you’d want this coverage even if it wasn’t legally required!

Since Illinois is a “fault” or “tort” state, your carrier will pay for accident damages only once you are found responsible for causing the accident. You can also be sued by the other driver if found at fault. Consider this: $20,000 is the maximum payment for property damage in Illinois but you collide with a $35,000 vehicle. If you are found at fault, you are on the hook for any damages beyond $20,000. Between this and the high cost of medical care, we recommend you carry more than the minimum required coverage!

  •  $25,000; Bodily injury coverage per person; Maximum payment for serious or permanent injury or death to a single person
  •  $50,000; Bodily injury coverage per accident; Maximum payment for serious or permanent injury or death to multiple people
  •  $20,000; Property damage per accident; Maximum payment for all damaged property in an accident caused by you

What Is the Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) limit in Elmhurst, IL?

It is illegal for an individual to operate a motor vehicle in Illinois with the following BAC percentages:

Does Illinois allow the use of digital insurance cards?

Yes! Thanks to Bill SB1775, getting pulled over in Illinois is slightly less panicky since you don’t have to locate the hard copy of your insurance card for the officer. BUT, be mindful of unlocking your phone to access your digital insurance card before the officer has determined whether you were cell-phoning and driving!
