Compared to other New England states, Connecticut has low minimum automobile insurance requirements. Here are how the statues compared:
Rhode Island 25/50
New York 25/50
New Hampshire 25/50
The first number is the minimum of liability insurance, while the second number is the corresponding underinsured/uninsured motorist amount. Notice that the highest is Maine which as a $50,000.00 minimum while the lowest is Connecticut and Massachusetts which a $20,000.00 minimum. Most the New England states have at least $25,000.00 minimum.
However, since Connecticut has a very high average income especially in the western part of the state, the $20,000.00 seems painfully inadequate.
