One of the most costly investments for most Americans, second to their home is their automobile or, in most cases, automobiles.
Americans have a love affair with their cars and since they are expensive to acquire and repair, we insure them with automobile insurance coverage.
During the last century automobile ownership has risen dramatically in the U.S. As our highway infrastructure has expanded more and more Americans are hitting the road and putting more mileage on their vehicles than ever before.
According to the US Bureau of Transit Statistics for 2006 there were 250,844,644 registered passenger vehicles in the US. Out of these roughly 251 million vehicles, 135,399,945 were classified as automobiles, while 99,124,775 were classified as “Other 2 axle, 4 tire vehicles,” presumably SUVs and pick-up trucks. Yet another 6,649,337 were classified as vehicles with 2 axles and 6 tires and 2,169,670 were classified as “Truck, combination.” There were approximately 6,686,147 motorcycles in the US in 2006.
