Uninsured Drivers Yes, If your name is on the title. Get insurance. If the driver or co-owner has an accident you can both be held jointly and separately liable for all damages.
Both the vehicle Owners and Drivers can be sued equally and have assets attached by a court order for damages arising out of an accident in which the uninsured vehicle is involved.
If you notify the police that it is being driven without insurance, they MAY be able to impound the car before an accident occurs.
Yes, in most states, it is illegal to drive on the road if the vehicle is not insured. In fact, in most accidents, proof of financial responsibility should be shown afterwards and if you don't have one or if your co-owner can't show one, you'll get cited and can even get your license suspended or revoked. It's better to get insurance so you can protect yourself and your assets in case of any damage or accident.
anonymous is correct but you should be aware that the police will do more than impound (most likely SEIZE) the vehicle. She would be arrested, her license can be revoked without issuance eligibility in North America and most UK countries, plus a record that could bar her from insurance sale eligibility for more than three years. I would take out insurance because if she has an accident, and is At Fault and no one can pay you both might do substantial prison time or at the least be on scummy buses the rest of your life. Don't You think the punishment in the second answer is too harsh?
The person in who's name the the ticket was issued is responsible for the ticket.
If the car you are driving is insured then you are not driving without insurance.
The fines and associated punitive fees for driving without insurance are determined by your jurisdiction.
There is no such SOL. Driving without insurance is a violation of motor vehicle regulation violations NOT a crime.
You can be convicted for number of faults if you are driving without a driving license. For example you can also be convicted for not having insurance. Because driving without valid driving license invalidates your insurance also.
If caught driving without proof of insurance and convicted is this considered a misdemeanor?
I don't think so not without their approval.
Is driving without insurance
Don't do it.
If you don't have insurance how will it go against your insurance?
I sense that this person driving your car without permission is a resident of your household. Without a police report of the theft of your vehicle then the person driving your car, especially if they are a resident of your household and reasonably knew where to find the keys, would have presumptive permission to use the car and your insurance will have to pay.
In most cases, a car will not get towed just for driving without insurance. The officer will usually ticket the driver instead.
