In some cases, Florida Law requires drivers to carry Bodily Injury liability insurance. This requirement applies to drivers convicted of certain traffic violations, such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The FR-44 also applies to drivers who are involved in an accident but cannot pay for damages.
FR-44 Required for DUI Drivers
Drivers convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs must provide proof of insurance in the amount of $100,000 per person, $300,000 per accident for Bodily Injury liability, and $50,000 Property Damage liability. Verification of the higher limits for bodily injury and property damage must be provided by submitting a FR-44 from their insurance carrier.
