Can I put money in a parking meter for someone else's car?
Anyone can put money in a parking meter for someone else, but this activity, called re-metering, is illegal in some cities. An enterprising type of individual arose some years back and made a business of sorts by feeding the meters of people whose time had expired, or nearly so. This person would then leave a self-addressed envelope on the vehicle asking for compensation which, obviously, was voluntary. The individual who was (possibly or probably) saved from getting a parking ticket might be inclined to put a few bucks in the envelope and post it. That, after all, was a return of the favor, and cheaper (by far) than having to pay a parking citation. City fathers in some of the urban areas where this was happening decided that this activity, re-metering, was costing the city because it cut into the revenues generated by issuing parking citations. Local ordinances sprang up here and there as other cities joined the move to protect the income being generated by parking enforcement activities.

Absolutely legal. Unless the car parked on the street is blocking another car from getting out, leaving or blocking your driveway. It's all public property in the US. Or unl…ess it is a private street, which, I am assuming it is not.
You will be charged with property damage and driving without a license and most likely driving without insurance. Not good.
Anybody who fits the legal requirements to drive in that jurisdiction, and has permission from the vehicle's owner, can drive the vehicle.
Answer Probably, some companies only require that you have care custody and control of the vehicle in order to be the named insured. Other companies require that… you be the registered owner. The problem that arises is that the finance company usually wants to have the evidence of insurance be in the name of the person responsible for the loan. If you are the named insured but not the name on the loan then the loan company may require that the person on the loan also be on the insurance policy as a named insured. The best way to do this is to have the person that owns the car get the insurance and list you the driver as the principle operator.
This means to imagine what it would be like to be someone else. To go through their experiences. Empathy.

Accidents in Someone Else's car? Primary Legal and Financial Liability for an automobile accident is always with the driver of the vehicle at fault, The vehicle owner can also… be held financially liable as they enabled the usage. So in most cases the vehicle owners policy will invoke. This is why many people mistakenly assume that the coverage followed the car. Contrary to popular belief, Auto liability Insurance does "not" automatically follow a car. Cars don't drive themselves. It follows the defined insureds legal liabilities which may arise out of vehicle ownership or operation. This may or may not extend to another driver. Liability follows the named Insureds while property coverage follows the vehicle. "Coverage from the Owners Policy not withstanding" The Law requires that All Operators of a Motor Vehicle on public roads carry proof of financial responsibility at all times irrespective of ownership. Their is no exception when it's not your car. Depending on the owners Auto Insurance Policy Form selected, coverage may or may not extend to other drivers. A standard Form Auto Insurance Policy will typically extend coverage for permitted drivers not engaged in a crime. A "Limited Policy" a "Non Owners Policy" or a "Named Driver Policy" while more economic in some cases will not extend coverage at all to any other permitted drivers. Consult with your Insurance Agent for appropriate coverage. Don't make broad assumptions about your financial responsibilities. You should always verify coverage before driving an unowned vehicle or make sure your own policy follows you as a named insured driver to a replacement or loaner vehicle. Insurance regulations vary by state regulation so it's always best to talk to an agent in your area. A local agent will be most familiar with your state regulations.
One may generally insure the property of another if you have an insurable interest in it. This means that you have a financial interest in the property that may be harmed …if the property is damaged or destroyed. .
If your state requires that a vehicle be insured before operating it, the responsibility of knowing whether it is insured or not falls upon the actual operator of the ve…hicle, regardless of who owns it.
