The legislation sets out specific circumstances that disqualify you from receiving certain accident benefits. These situations include:
– driving without a valid driver’s license
– driving a vehicle when you knew or should have known that you were driving without the owner’s consent
– being a passenger who knew or should have known that the driver did not have the owner’s consent to drive the vehicle
– driving when you knew or should have known that you did not have valid insurance
– driving while impaired or refusing to provide a breath sample
– using an automobile in connection with criminal activity
– and having knowingly misrepresented information when you applied for auto insurance.
