NASDA MOTOR VEHICLE INSURANCE REGULATION
As an employee of NASDA, you are not covered under the Federal Tort Claims Act. You must have motor vehicle liability insurance which meets the minimum requirement for your State. You should contact your insurance company to determine if additional coverage is needed. Survey work qualifies as a non-farm business. Insurance companies generally require a higher rate for cars and trucks used in a non-farm business in comparison with vehicles used solely for farm work. NASDA does have comprehensive liability insurance covering their liability in excess of insurance carried by Enumerators. Should you fail to inform you insurance company that you are engaged in a non-farm business with you motor vehicle, you could face possible cancellation of the policy if you are involved in an accident.
