Headline Roundup: MHA Research Shows Michigan Motorists Largely Unfamiliar with New Auto No-fault Law

Posted on January 23, 2020

The MHA received coverage from several media outlets across the state following the public release of research that finds Michigan’s 7.2 million motorists are largely unfamiliar with the state’s new auto no-fault insurance law that will take effect July 1.

On May 30, 2019, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed a bill making sweeping changes to Michigan’s auto no-fault insurance law. An in-depth study of 1,005 Michigan motorists conducted by Escalent, a southeast Michigan company that conducts specialized market and consumer behavior research for many companies and industries, found that only 12% of insured motorists are “very familiar” and 35% are “a little familiar” with the new law, while 53% have just “heard of it” or are “not at all familiar.”

Here are a few headlines from around the state:

The MHA will continue to work with key stakeholders during the launch of a public education campaign in the spring to educate motorists about the new law. Members with questions regarding the upcoming public awareness campaign should contact Ruthanne Sudderth and any questions regarding media requests should contact John Karasinski at the MHA.
