Liability Insurance Now Law for Motorcyclists in Washington

SEATTLE, Wash. - Cars, trucks, vans, and other vehicles on the road are required by law to have liability insurance. The one exception to that law is motorcyclists - until now.

Starting July 28th, all motorcyclists are required to meet the minimum insurance standards for other vehicles by carrying liability insurance. Prior to this, motorcyclists were not required to have liability insurance, leaving other drivers in an accident involving a motorcycle potentially liable.

Also starting now, all motorcyclists, like all other drivers, are required to carry proof-of-insurance when on the road. Riders who are stopped by police without it will be cited for a traffic violation, which may result in a fine.
