Obligation for Non-Residents to Maintain Michigan No-Fault Insurance
Lawyer Commentary on No-Fault Statute: MCL 500.3102
Security for payment of benefits; criminal sanctions; failure to produce evidence; rebuttable presumption
This provision of the Michigan No-Fault law applies to non-residents of Michigan and requires they maintain Michigan No-Fault insurance coverage on an owned motor vehicle. A non-resident who does not follow this insurance provision is guilty of a misdemeanor under Michigan law. Even a non-resident simply driving a car or truck that is uninsured is guilty of a misdemeanor.
Specifically, non-residents may not operate, or allow another person to operate an automobile in Michigan for more than a total of 30 days in any year. However, if the non-resident insures the automobile there is no criminal penalty.
