17:29C-2.1. Dangerous drivers
No insurer, including the New Jersey Automobile Full Insurance Underwriting Association, shall be required to issue or renew collision or comprehensive insurance coverage, or both, at standard market rates, for an automobile, as defined in section 2 of P.L. 1972, c. 70 (C. 39:6A-2), or as defined in section 15 of P.L. 1983, c. 65 (C. 17:30E-3), in the case of the New Jersey Automobile Full Insurance Underwriting Association, to any person identified as a dangerous driver or as having excessive claims in accordance with standards and guidelines to be adopted by the Commissioner of Insurance. Insurers writing in the voluntary market may, and the New Jersey Full Insurance Underwriting Association shall, issue collision or comprehensive insurance coverage, or both, to a person whose coverage was not issued or not renewed pursuant to this section on the basis of the person's experience. With regard to the identification of dangerous drivers, the standards and guidelines adopted by the commissioner shall take into consideration the total driving record of the driver, as well as any serious driving offenses, as defined by the commissioner, committed within a three year period, including motor vehicle violations resulting in an at-fault automobile accident. In the case of the New Jersey Full Insurance Underwriting Association, the plan of operation may provide that certain risks may be excluded from collision and comprehensive coverages altogether.
The commissioner shall adopt rules and regulations necessary or appropriate to effectuate the purposes of this section.
