Isn’t that what “Liability” is for – protection from others?

Maybe I’m just misunderstanding. I was under the impression that Liability was for damages to other people/property, and “Comprehensive” was for your own vehicle(repair or replacement). Therefore, if your vehicle isn’t worth much, dropping Comprehensive saves you money, keeps you protected with regard to people/property(damages and lawsuits), and you’re not risking anything except the replacement cost of the vehicle.
