The really unfortuate thing is you may be gambling with other people's
money/health/well-being in general if you cause a serious accident and
don’t have the means to make amends....

Comprehensive?  What's that?

In other words, hell no I don't have comprehensive, or for that matter 
collision, or unininsured.  Bare bones all the way.  In fact if the
didn't require it, I'd have no insurance at all.  I guess I'll just have
see what the "cash" vs "insurance company" costs are.

Funny, I don't like gambling, but still am willing to take the gamble on
road that I won't need insurance.  I guess I feel I have some modicum of

control, and hence it's not really a gamble.
