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.
I'm not sure, but driving without insurance is STUPID, and DANGEROUS!
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 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.
I don't think so not without their approval.
It depends on whether she is driving a car registered to you, or to her. If she's driving a car registered to you or to the both of you, then you are responsible for the insurance as well. If she's driving a car that is registered to her without your name on the registration, then legally you are not required to carry insurance on her, as she is already over the age of 18. In this case, it does not matter whether she is a full time student or not, she is responsible for her own insurance.
Is driving without insurance
If you don't have insurance how will it go against your insurance?
Don't do it.
In most cases, a car will not get towed just for driving without insurance. The officer will usually ticket the driver instead.
I don't know what the fine is in a particular jurisdiction but I can tell you this. The fine for driving without insurance will be far more than six months premium of the insurance that you were required to carry.
You'll be ticketed for driving with an invalid registration and driving without insurance, and you still owe that money to the bank.
If you get caught driving without insurance, you will lose your license. You will also be fined and could get jail time. It is up to the judge in traffic court.
If there is no insurance on the vehicle and you get a ticket for driving without insurance you are guilty of the offense and will have to pay your fine. Even though the vehicle belongs to someone else it is the responsibility of the driver to make sure there is valid auto insurance on the vehicle before driving it.
Yes. You can even get insurance without a license. However, if you get into an accident and you're found driving alone on a permit, or you're found driving without a license, it will void your policy.
