HINT: Texas law requires any driver operating a motor vehicle in the state to have a minimum amount of auto liability insurance coverage

The purpose of the Texas Safety Responsibility Law (n/k/a the Motor Vehicle Safety Responsibility Act) is to promote safe driving practices among all owners and operators of motor vehicles using the highways of this State, and to require such owners and operators to discharge their financial responsibility to others for damage to persons or property occasioned by the exercise, by such owner or operator, of the privilege or license of using the public highways of this State. Gonzalez v. Texas Department of Public Safety, 340 S.W.2d 860, 863 (Tex.Civ.App.-El Paso 1960, no writ). Under the Act, the owner/operator of an automobile is required to establish financial responsibility, such as an automobile liability insurance policy, before operating a vehicle on Texas highways.

Texas Safety Responsibility Law requires auto liability of insurance coverage that provides property, liability and medical coverage. i.e. minimum liability coverage at $20,000 for one person's injuries or death; medical coverage at $40,000 for the injury or death of two or more people; and property coverage at $15,000 for property damage.
