Usually if the vehicle is over 10 years old and worth less than $3500. However, the value is a personal preference.

Why isn't the cost of liability insurance proportional to the amounts of protection for instance why doesn't a 100000 limit of liability cost two and one-half times as much as a 40000 limit?

The cost of liability insurance is not proportional to the amount of protection of insurance because it is based on cost of overhead and payout. The office costs for one policy are the same as for another policy regardless of amount. The other reason has to do with payout. An accident occurred. A driver ran a stop sign and hit another car. The driver that ran the stop sign was at fault. He did $ 5,000 worth of damage to the other car. His insurance covered it. It did not matter if he had $ 10,000 worth of insurance or $ 100,000 worth of insurance. The insurance company still paid $ 5,000. Since most accidents are in that range, most of the costs go to cover that type of accident. Very few accidents occur that would cost $90,000 to fix. The cost of insurance that is against rare events is quite low.
