You are responsible for all damage or loss you cause to others. You have either provided us with an insurance binder indicating that you have primary motor vehicle liability collision and comprehensive insurance covering you, us, and the vehicle (we will provide you with a binder request form which will give your insurance carrier all the information they will need to produce a binder for you), or you have elected to purchase MBA Choice at If you elected to purchase MBA Choice:
(i) Damage to the vehicle is covered by MBA Choice, with a deductible per occurrence for which deductible amount you are responsible.

(ii) Auto liability insurance is part of MBA Choice, and provides coverage for bodily injury and property damage caused by you to third persons with limits no higher than the minimum levels prescribed by the financial responsibility laws of the State whose laws apply to the damage or loss. MBA Choice covers medical payments or PIP, no-fault and statutory limits for uninsured and under insured motorist coverage. Coverage is void if you violate the terms of this Agreement or if you fail to cooperate in any loss investigation conducted by us, or the insurer. Allowing an unauthorized driver to operate the Vehicle terminates MBA Choice.
