Should senior citizens carry collision insurance?

Thanks for the question! Comprehensive and collision are not state-mandated coverages. Though if she is financing the vehicle she would need to carry these coverages for her loan in most cases.

Will PIP pay for my medical bills?

Yes, personal injury protection (PIP) should cover any injuries resulting from an accident regardless of whether or not it was a single-vehicle accident. I would file a claim as soon as possible.

Does Farmers allow exclusions?

While I do not work for Farmers, it has been my experience that they do allow exclusions. Usually, you will need to call your agent or a customer service representation at their call sent and request an exclusion form.

Will my farmers insurance cover my towing off the the NJ turnpike

Although I am not a Farmers insurance agent, my understanding of Farmer's Roadside Assistance program is you can either call their roadside service while your vehicle is inoperable and they will tow you up to $150 or you can be reimbursed for your troubles. However, this is all dependent on having towing and roadside on your policy.

Why do certain jobs pay less for car insurance?

The discount you are referring to is known as an "Affinity" or "Membership" Discount. Basically, insurance companies use historical data to prove that certain occupations equate to less risky drivers.

Will my Farmers insurance roadside assistance provide towing up to 250 miles?

Roadside assistance varies by insurance company. From my understanding, most towing and roadside assistance coverage offered as part of an auto policy either has a set dollar amount to cover a tow, covers towing up to 15 miles from your breakdown, or covers towing to the nearest repair facility.

If I am planning to buy a car in the US as a tourist, will I be able to get insurance?

Even if you don't have a US driver license, you should still be able to find coverage with most insurance companies. You mentioned that you will be traveling around the US so it's important to note that US insurance companies require a "permanent" address before they will issue a policy.
