How do I know what type of anti-theft system I have?

was factory installed) or may be explained in the owner's manual.
What if my vehicle isn't listed?
Call us to discuss coverage options for your vehicle.
Every driver must be assigned to one vehicle. A vehicle can only have one principal
driver but can have multiple occasional drivers.
Who is considered the principal driver of a vehicle?
The principal driver is the driver who uses the vehicle most often.
What if two drivers on the application share a vehicle?
Only one of the two drivers can be assigned as a principal driver. The other driver
can be listed as an occasional driver as long as all other vehicles on the application
have been assigned a principal driver.
If a driver on the application is not assigned to a particular vehicle, would coverage
apply when they are driving it?
My current policy lists separate limits for bodily
injury and property damage liability and uninsured/underinsured motorist. Why is
NJM offers a combined single limit (CSL) for Liability and Uninsured/Underinsured
Motorists coverage. This limit applies to all bodily injury and property damage
resulting from a single accident. Some insurers "split" this limit and set a maximum
payout amount to any one person for bodily injury. A separate limit is provided
for property damage.
Combined Single Limit
$100,000 / $300,000 / $50,000
$300,000 = per accident limit for bodily injury and property damage
$100,000 = per person limit for bodily injury
$300,000 = per accident limit for bodily injury
$50,000 = per accident limit for property damage
