       PAP Liability Insuring Agreement

1. Insurer promises to pay damages for “bodily
   injury” or “property damage” for which any
   “insured” becomes legally responsible
   because of an auto accident.
    • 1998 edition of the PAP is written with
       split liability limits (e.g., 20/40/15).

2. Key elements in determining coverage, then,
   are whether the individual is an “insured,”
   and whether the auto being operated is a
   covered auto.
     “Insured” as used in this part means:

1. You or any “family member” for the
   ownership, maintenance or use of any auto
   or “trailer.”
2. Any person using “your covered auto.”
3. For “your covered auto,” any person or
   organization but only with respect to legal
   responsibility for acts or omissions of a
   person for whom coverage is afforded under
   this Part.

     “Insured” as used in this part means:

4. For any auto or “trailer,” other than “your
   covered auto,” any person or organization
   but only with respect to legal responsibility
   for acts or omissions of you or any family
   member for whom coverage is afforded
   under this part. This provision (B.4.) applies
   only if the person or organization does not
   own or hire the auto or “trailer.”

J. “Your covered auto” means:
 1. Any vehicle shown in the Declarations.
 2. A “newly acquired auto”.
 3. Any “trailer” you own.
 4. Any auto or “trailer” you do not own while
     uses as a temporary substitute for any other
     vehicle described in this definition which is
     out of normal use because of its:
      a. Breakdown;        b. Repair
      c. Servicing;        d. Loss; or
      e. Destruction.

for Damage to Your Auto.

Covered Auto” provides coverage for new autos,
but on a qualified basis.
