Driver Rights


NYSTLA works to defend the rights of millions of drivers across the state from lobbyists for the auto insurance industry who have long supported proposed laws in Albany that would make it easier for insurance companies to deny legitimate claims from car insurance victims.  

NYSTLA also fights to make sure New York’s drivers have the information they need to make informed decisions when purchasing auto insurance. NYSTLA supports the “SUM” bill, which would make sure that all drivers are informed about Supplemental Underinsured Motorist coverage, the only insurance that protects you and your family if you are in an accident caused by an under- or uninsured driver.
